Michael has received commissions from Keith Kirchoff and the Midwest Chamber Ensemble, the California E.A.R. Unit, Music from China, and violist Katrin Meidell, among others. His works have been performed by Mnemosyne Quartet, Hillary Sametz, Richard Prior and the Oklahoma State University Symphony Orchestra, and Embryonic Noise!
