A series of cable sculptures acting as antennas to broadcast sonic transmissions over short-range radio networks.
In this site-dependent work, variable lengths and configurations of thin copper cabling are installed within a space to form ephemeral antennas. Audio recordings are broadcast and distributed by the structures, then received by portable battery-powered radio receivers integrated into the surrounding space—either architecturally or behind unobtrusive enclosures. Nearby bodies significantly alter the effectiveness of the transmission and reception. The resulting interference highlights a fragile relationship between physical presence, and invisible channels of communication, power, and control.
Sound + Signal
Within a room engulfed by sine tones from multiple speakers, carefully positioned audio cables form circles to show where standing waves create auditory zones of loudness and quietness.

Project with Brian Chase
Constructed from a live performance, the two tracks for this recording were edited and shape-shifted in post-production, further blurring the line between stage and studio.

This webcam audiovisual work investigates the sonification of Times Square. With the ubiquity of streaming digital content, it seems we often choose to be in two places at once. Utilizing a variety of data extraction techniques, I interpret and layer information (sounds, movement, levels of sunlight) from an open source and public webcam, suggesting an alternative soundtrack for the crowded and busy space.
