Sound Art / Installation
Sound Installation / Curation
"Rainforest" (David Tudor)
Re-created Tudor's classic sound art piece.
For my part, I installed a transducer in a typewriter, through which I was playing field recordings
from the Australian Daintree rainforest. A sheet of paper in the typewriter allowed viewers to type away.
The typing created an interesting interaction with the bizarre soundscape resonating through the typewriter.
"Quasimodo the Great Lover" (Alvin Lucier)
Another re-creation, this time of Lucier's 'Quasimodo,' wherein sound is projected through multiple
spaces and assumes the room tones from each space it moves through. For this installation,
I mic'd a nearby stream and sent the water sound through several rooms, resonating through piano strings, and out a pedestal in a nearby auditorium. The results were quite interesting.
"Clouds Made of Concrete: Two Days of Film and Music," Ballroom Marfa.
Asked by Ballroom Marfa to program an evening of film and another evening of music.
We watched "Imaginary Landscapes" and "Tom Dowd." And danced and drank whiskey.
"Long Distance Relationship," Bolm Gallery.
For the painting exhibition by Sam Sanford and Marguerite Phillips, I was commissioned to create
a multi-room interactive sound installation. For this piece, I had 4 separate rooms running through
looping samplers, all playing against a central drone. I walked through the rooms and played guitar
and keyboard into the loopers. The performance / installation lasted 5 hours.
Books / Zines / Chapbooks
I am frequently self-publishing chapbooks, zines, and larger books.
I sell these books at shows and at select independent bookstores.
