13 Seconds: The Tension of Opposites is a book of verbatim prose created by composer Matthew Ferraro and famed Welsh poet Elin Ap Hywel, the dramatic stories of how each piece was created and featured in his multi-media work entitled, The Tension of Opposites. Topics that the prose touch on include 911, building community, the inter-generational divide, issues of the wealthy and the poor, religion and beliefs, and the struggle between man and nature. The book features interviews and statements from people who have experienced these situations, ranging from Hiroshima to the financial crisis. The testimonies are interwoven into mosaics of poetry and prose that formed the libretto for The Tensions of Opposites, a large-scale multimedia work that opened to standing ovations at the Barbican in London in 2009.

Chika Little Ship Head. This album features pop songs written for the band, who play melodic, alternative lite rock. Their music combines a diverse mix of influences, including lead singer/songwriter Chika Sekeguchi, who is the daughter of a Japanese country western singer. As a result, their music appeals to a wide audience (or the crossover potential of the music is vast).
