Untitled. 1972, from Deja-Vu
Sound, Installation


Untitled. 1972, from Deja-Vu is a composition in response to the Ralph Gibson photograph of same title. Paired together for the exhibition, the work is 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.
