About

What am I doing?!

I am a musician, composer, performer, sound artist, maker, programmer, and many other things. My primary interest is in sound. How it engulfs us, how it expands with the amount of attention you give it, how sound can become music (or music can become sound), how what we hear affects how we feel and what we think.

In the past I've made sound installations that sonify sunlight. I've conducted field recordings in Swedish cemeteries. I've improvised on bassoon, electronics, and as a dancer. I've choreographed performance art, restaged historical performance art from the 1960s, and conducted research in generative sound and environmental sensors.

I never know where my attention will lead me to next, but so far I've been pretty happy with the journey it's led more on. Want to come along?

Why Patreon?

Patreon provides a platform for makers of all stripes to engage with their supporters ("patrons"). Often, this means getting the gratitude of the creator (me in this case -- hello!), as well as access to goodies not available to the general public as a way of saying "thanks".

But I envision my Patreon campaign as something more than transactional. I want to share my process with you. At various tiers of support, you'll notice that you'll get access to my work as I'm working on it, which is the cool part! You'll get to see how my process winds around, how I hone down my ideas, how I reach the end of a project by snaking along in various ways.

Patreon allows me to receive payment for doing the work I want to do, while allowing people who are interested and willing to support me see what I'm doing as I'm doing it. I think this is wildly exciting! So rarely do we get to see how people do their creative work, and this is your chance to get a glimpse into my world. Thank you for supporting me, and more importantly, thank you for your interest in my process.

Check out my work!

Here's just a few of the projects I've recently worked on. This list winds from performance art, to sound installation, to musical composition. With your support, this list can be ten times as long -- and you get behind-the-scenes access to all of it.

sunlight synth, a sound installation that turns sunlight into sound:

hushers, for Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble:

remnant // residue, a house-wide sound installation about haunting:

Place in Exhaustion, a piece about moving furniture (timelapse):

tin birds, a sound installation about very high frequencies:
Goals
$0 of $10 per month
This would give me more flexibility to spend time on my projects, which means I'll be able to give periodic updates on what I'm up to.

This is just under one extra hour per month, but I think it's an excellent first goal. Even one extra hour per month to work on my projects means a lot to me.
