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.

i’m now an artist collaborating with lili maya as maya + rouvelle.

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.
