Featured panelist at 2015 David Foster Wallace Conference

This Thursday, May 28, 2015, I am honoured to be a featured panelistĀ at the 2015 David Foster Wallace Conference in Normal, IL. I will be giving a brief presentation titled “Infinite JestĀ as a Generative Tool for Music Composition,” based on my recently completed masters thesis. It will be a fascinating experience to be surrounded by others who have found Wallace to be such an interesting and influential figure.
