My audio career path began with radio production (KUAC-FM). That led to recording engineering (Dead Kennedys, Kronos Quartet, Heiner Goebbels), sound design for dance (Frankfurt Ballet, Lines Ballet), and touring concert sound (Frank Zappa, Ensemble Modern).
I've also produced and mixed a studio recording for jazz pianist and composer, Jason Moran for the Lines Ballet piece, Refraction.
An understanding of sound informs my building and performing computer music environments (IRCAM) and audio software development (Max, UpMix).
Music, Composition, Art
I perform with virtual instruments which act sonically and visually. Each performance touches upon a range of human complexities without resorting to standard archetypes of narrative.
Understanding dance taught me how to compose music and has guided my video work. Collaboration with choreographers has been one of my greatest artistic pleasures. I've worked with choreographers both as a composer and digital media artist. In 2009, I worked with Alex Ketley as joint recipients of a Gerbode grant, where choreographers are paired with artists.
Beyond performance, I have composed music for yoga and bodywork. In this type of movement, music is perceived in the body of each listener. Some of this work is available on SoundCloud.
