Amos’ music was gentle, sensitive, conscious of the narrative, beautiful. The underlying emotion of the film is supposed to be a deep, quiet longing, and I think that as a composer he understood that very well. – Michael Dudok de Wit (response to the re-score of his Oscar winning film “Father and Daughter”)
I was recently awarded a Chicago DCASE Individual Artist Support Grant for my new one hour musical revue, ‘The Squeeze’ - to be premiered in October 2016. Also, I recently had my work “Jasper Johns” featured on Lisa Flynn’s WFMT program, “New Releases;” and music I wrote for “1001 Afternoons in Chicago: a radio play” was performed in Kerry Frumkin’s “Live from WFMT” by the Palomar Ensemble and Strawdog Theatre. I also recently celebrated the release of the album ”Paintings Composed” with my chamber ensemble, the Gillespie Chamber Quartet.
