Hi everyone!
In order to keep my music and message genuine, I am joining the Community-Supported Art (CSA) movement! Community is especially important to the integrity of my work and developing relationships with like-minded folks is central to my cause.

I don't want to rely on competitions and grants anymore to make meaningful art. For a small monthly donation, your contribution will allow me the opportunity to focus completely on music making and political activism to continue fighting against oppression, war, censorship, and bigotry, as well as fighting for workers rights, equality, unity, and peace!

Every month, a third of this amount will be donated to a different charity (I will let you know each month) that focuses on environmental issues, income inequality, and/or human rights.

Thank you for your support!

He is the co-founding artistic director of progressive and socially conscious new music collective Tenth Intervention, and bandleader of the improvisational septendectet The Free Sound Ahn-somble, both based in New York City.

He has collaborated with artists such as Nicholas Finch, NouLou Chamber Players, Paul Pinto, Charlotte Mundy, Pamela Z, Frank London, Experiments In Opera, Ensemble Interactivo de La Habana - EIH, Composers Concordance, Periapsis Music and Dance, Robert Ashley, Seneca Black, Matt Marks, RIOULT Dance, Alison Cook Beatty Dance, Kensaku Shinohara, and John Sanborn.

His work (individually and collectively) has been presented as a featured artist at National Sawdust, NPR's Science Friday, Rubin Museum of Art, The Greene Space at WNYC & WQXR, Pompidou Centre, Palais Jacques Coeur, The DiMenna Center for Classical Music, Casa de las Américas La Habana, Cuba, Americas Society, New Music USA, Lower Manhattan Community Council, the Earle Brown Music Foundation, the Johnstone Fund for New Music, the Puffin Foundation, Caveat, New Music Gathering, Universidad de Costa Rica, Interlochen Public Radio, New York University’s Precarious Sounds // Sounding Sanctuary conference, and the 2018-19 Composer-in-residence with Exploring the Metropolis.

Dorian works extensively as a dance accompanist at Martha Graham Dance Company, Barnard College of Columbia University, Juilliard, Doug Varone and Dancers, and Interlochen Center for the Arts. He is a teaching artist with The Mark Morris Dance Accompaniment Training Program.
