I am a sound artist, improviser, and recording engineer who is interested in all forms of recorded sound as material for composition, improvisation, installation, and listening. My practice is wide and diverse regarding sonic art. I make field recordings, build my own electronic circuits and synthesizers, program all types of computers to make unusual sounds, resonate objects with actuators, record micro-sounds with contact microphones, and improvise playing the laptop as a solo performer and with groups. I have studied composition at a conservatory, audio engineering via a classical music festival, and experimentalism through living and teaching in Los Angeles. I like to play the piano.
As a performer I play the laptop or a combination of electronic devices and synthesizers. I thrive on improvisation. I love the interaction between recorded, processed sound and traditional musical instruments. The sounds I create are usually derived from field recordings or samples that have been processed and altered from their origins. I enjoy experimenting with software, outboard processors, speakers, and resonators to create sounds that push listening boundaries and hinge on discovery. I like to build sonic systems, give them a push, and discover what is created by staying out of the way. I like to challenge listeners using a variety of ideas and methods including long-forms, slowly evolving ambient textures, disembodied recordings, glitched-out computer sounds, otoacoustics, and all manner of noise.
