People Doing Strange Things With Electricity Too


My background is in visual art and music. The two interests are synonymous and go back many years. I find that they help inform my aesthetics in an interdisciplinary way. I have always had an enthusiasm for abstract forms of music and have always enjoyed musique concrete and improvised music. These influence my approach to painting.

I worked in radio for several years at KMUN in Astoria, developing a feel for improvised mixing on air, and work in the medium of reel to reel tape. My music tries to reflect any number of approaches to the sequencing and editing of sound, relying on the general feeo of electro-acoustic music. I also seek to create a new point of reference for the guitar in a non-traditional setting, while hopefully evoking the timelessness of the guitar as a narrative instrument.
