"Melting" Sound installation at SVA Flatiron Gallery Oct. 20-Nov. 21

My sound installation “Melting” will be on exhibit at SVA Flatiron Gallery for a month as part of the Fall 2018 Exhibition - Left to Devices.

The piece is an interactive sound installation and is part of my Sonified Geography series. The series looks at the effect of human habitation on the natural environment through found objects and found sounds.

Residency at the Hurleyville Makers Lab - February and March 2017

 Super excited to announce that I'll be an artist in residence at the Hurleyville Makers Lab for February and March. I'll be designing and building some new sound controllers and working on a community based sonic mapping project. The project will involve soliciting audio files, recorded in the Sullivan/Delaware county area, from the community to use in the project...stayed tuned for details. See you at the Pickled Owl.

Performance at Dunedin Fine Arts Center

Over the weekend of Dec 3rd & 4th I will be in residence at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center.  Some of my instruments have been part of the See/Hear exhibition there since September. On Saturday, December 3rd I'll be doing a demo of some of the instruments in the exhibit, then on Sunday I'll be performing a live set at the art center at 2pm. I'll also be making an appearance on the local radio show "Art in Your Ear" on WMNF, talking about my work and playing some tracks. Looking forward to this whole weekend.
