about / cv
i taught myself how to write music as a child as a means to recreate improvisations i made at the piano. in retrospect my early works were in a style similar to Morton Feldman, whom i had never heard. i soon began to compose works of written and improvised parts for unusual combinations of instruments, including electronics in what is now termed circuit bending. i attended a performance of Alban Berg’s Wozzeck as a teenager and dedicated myself to studying Western Art Music. i abandoned my earlier efforts and became a more traditional composer and performer.
that phase lasted over a decade until i realized that the experiences i wanted to investigate were not sufficiently available to me in the timespace of that genre. that’s not to say i don’t love a lot of that music, but i had to move elsewhere.
we work with emerging and traditional media, processes and concepts, including robotics, computation, custom optics, sound, sculpture, installation and drawing.
most of my creative actions are intended to foster a free relationship with the environment and to render the contemporary world imaginable.
