BIOGRAPHY:

Michael is a BMI composer and his academic credits include both a degree in
music and education from
St. Martin's University in Lacey, Washington, USA
where he studied under Rev. Eugene Kellenbenz O.S.B. a renowned
liturgical composer.

He went on to earn a degree in music composition from
Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington, USA. There he studied
with composer Lockrem Johnson, himself a student of Howard Hanson
and a  colleague of composer John Cage and choreographers Martha Graham
and Merce Cunningham.

Over the years, Michael's compositional styles have been far ranging.  He's
explored everything from 12-tone serial composition to contemporary rock
and pop forms. He recently worked alongside the 70's British rock
legend
Peter Frampton while performing duties as composer
and music director for a current TV info-mercial.

Michael has served as a member of the team of composers behind the critically
acclaimed
PBS series "Wings Over America" produced by Jeff Gentes of
KCTS Public Television, Seattle.  Among the episodes that Michael
worked on were "Washington D.C. Our Nation's Capital" with actor
Jason Robards narrating and more recently the 90 minute special
"Over America" with actor Tom Skerrit doing the narration.

Michael also composed the soundtracks for the popular
Civil War Series produced by documentary producer/director Jan Kurtis
for
Camelot Media.

In addition to his compositional work, Michael is also a highly skilled synthesizer
programmer.  He assisted composer Hans Zimmer by creating complex
and unusual synth sound textures for the 20th Century Fox
feature film "TOYS" starring Robin Williams.

In the early 70's Michael and his wife Collene joined fellow composer Ron Ellis,
his wife Nancy and flautist Mary Lowney at St. Patrick's Parish in Seattle
to form the liturgical performing and recording group
Ellis & Lynch.

 

Michael is currently music specialist at Christ The King School in Seattle Washington as well as Music Minister at Christ The King Parish.
