bio / resume

Represented by the Joseph Nease Gallery.

I am a composer and trans / media artist. In live performance, installation and online environments, I blend found sound, text, data and abstract, layered, moving images. My recent work has focused on creating generative methods for building multichannel cross-sensory environments.

My exploration of cross-media forms has resulted in the production of print books and recorded work through transmedia landscapes which flow from the digital web into physical installation and performance spaces.

I have a background in mathematics, ecology, music theory and software development. The confluence of these research areas informs my work. I create frameworks for representing dynamical systems and am interested in emergent structures, chance, myth, improvisatory forms, polyphony, interactive webs, harmonic relationships and the orchestration of sound, light, and color.
