If I built a house from a plan by Frank Lloyd Wright, say in Florida, and it was exactly like the original house from top to bottom, would it be as valuable as the original? Well, why not??

For example, a picture of a regular drinking glass.

Now a picture of a regular drinking glass, but this one was owned by Gustav Mahler.

Why is this one more valuable?

My new piece "Arounds" is being premiered by Baroque Northwest at the Bethany Lutheran Church in Seattle, Ocotber 1, 2005.

It's made up of two movements - Loop and Swirls. I hate naming pieces, but these titles actually describe what the music is doing - The first movement loops around and around, looping in on itself, and Swirls has the lines swirling about a chaconne. More information about the concert can be found at
