I began studying music at the age of three, and continued in classical piano studies into my teen years. In college and graduate school, I took courses in music composition, music theory, and computer music. My first symphony was composed while I was completing my Ph.D. at Stanford, and my second Symphony was composed while I was a Whitney fellow at Harvard. I am an active member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Grammy.com) and a member of ASCAP. When recording classical music, I typically assemble a studio orchestra and conduct them in the studio, and later editing, mixing, and mastering the recordings digitally.

Here are my two genres:



Sonatronic Recordings: The Fusion of symphonic classical and electronic dance music.

  Sager at Piano
Sonatronic recordings produces music which integrates the short—term rhythmic framework and information content of electronic / dance music with the long-term narrative structure in the symphonic classical literature. Music telling a story with a beat.

New Classical Music: Tuneful, Tonal, and Listener Friendly Compositions:

Melodic, tonal themes embrace a strong and vibrant harmonic framework. Syncopated rhythms coalesce with tuneful melody. Baroque, romantic, and impressionistic compositional styles are incorporated with in a modern musical structure, leading to a dynamic interplay of counterpoint and rhythm.
