My music is characterized by collaborative approaches to composition, the use of electronics, and improvisation. I explore transformational processes, performer/computer improvisation, and re-imagine older compositional processes through the lens of 21st century technology.
I am fascinated by the inner-workings of sound and draw inspiration from the exquisite, the microscopic, and the immersive that we find in both the natural and mechanical worlds. In my ecosystemic works, I model the behavior of objects in the natural world in electronic sound, creating interactive sonic ecosystems that encourage, rather than dictate, a particular performance.
The result of pursuing all these interests is a diverse body of work, the product of a lot of hands-on experimentation and collaboration with classically-trained new music performers, early music specialists, jazzers, members of famous rock n roll bands, and even a band of robots.
