Secret Noise

This is old news, but I realized I never posted about it…

The Journal of Sonic Studies has published Krzysztof Fijalkowski’s essay “Secret Noise: Marcel Duchamp and the (Un)sound Object” that references my work With Hidden Noises. The journal is open access, so no subscription needed!

Sound Drawing

Drawing from the third piece in my set at They, Who Sound on Monday 22 November 2021

Many thanks to Nameless Sound, Dave Dove, Thomas Helton, Anthony and Lawndale Arts Center for a great They, Who Sound show in Houston on Monday night! Here’s a guitar-driven drawing created during my set.

I wrote code in Processing to produce these images. Each note I play on the guitar spawns a particle which a traverses the space of the drawing, interacting with virtual gravitational fields.

Studio 300 Visit

I had a great visit recently to Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, for the Studio 300 Digital Art and Music Festival.

I performed my piece Crow Chases Red-tailed Hawk for custom aerophones and live electronics. And my sculpture A Work of Art for Every Entry in Index—Subjects—Library of Congress was included in the exhibition.

There were interesting Artist Talks by Chad Eby and Hunter Ewen, more concerts and exhibits, and fun AR soundwalk on campus. Kudos to Tim Polashek and his team for putting it all together.

Astonishment… on offer now

My piece A Work of Art for Every Entry in Index—Subjects—Library of Congress has been included in a special journal issue titled Astonishment.
