Move, tongue

Move, tongue is an attempt to create a non-linear space in sound, where the order of events is not important but rather the experience and perception of their coexistence. In my mind this is analogous to the act of being in a physical space (say a room or a park) and after perceiving it with whatever degree of detail, one arrives at an internal conception — a modeling — of the space.


Paper Speakers

This project explores the technical, design, and aesthetic possibilities of 2-D, flexible audio speaker technology. The premise underlying this exploration is the idea that sound can be thought of as a physically immediate, transparent and embodied material. The end goal for me is the use of this material for my art practice: Sound Art, Installation, and Composition.


Darsána I

Darsana I is an interactive work for a pianist playing the Yamaha Disklavier (a piano fitted with MIDI technology in its keys). I connect the Disklavier to a computer and program software to interact with a pianist. The pianist plays material which acts as triggers to the Disklavier, and causes it to respond with material I have worked out.
