Untitled. 1972, from Deja-Vu
Sound, Installation


Untitled. 1972, from Deja-Vu is a composition in response to the Ralph Gibson image of the same name. Engineered for headphones. Commissioned by the Arthur Ross Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania for Landscape / Soundscape. Excerpt here.

Bodies of Water

Bodies of Water is an ongoing series of sculptures requiring listeners to physically initiate contact with the works, resonating their bone structures. The long-form compositions contained within the water are thus made audible. Commissions from Flux Factory, Little Berlin, and Fairmount Water Works.

Duende is a 15ft above-ground pool engineered into a large-scale oscillator that continuously activates harmonic standing waves and nodes within the site. The pool was accompanied by a series of ensemble vocal improvisations, and a 90ft x 20ft four-channel video installation. Commissioned by the Icebox Project Space for their Sound Residency Series. Excerpt here.
