He has composed for the Silk Road Ensemble, Kronos Quartet, Nederlands Blazers, the American Composers Orchestra, Brooklyn Rider, So Percussion, Maya Beiser, Wu Man, Sentieri Selvaggi. With Steve Reich he recorde New York Counterpoint and shared in a 1998 Grammy for Music for 18 Musicians. He produced several of Bang on a Can's seminal recordings, including Brian Eno's Music for Airports. He has also recorded with Paul Simon, Meredith Monk, and Matthew Shipp. He currently performs with Iva Bittova and Gyan Riley as the Eviyan Trio.
