The first link (which actually cannot be embedded, apologies) is a solo excerpt from a ~20 minute performance I did last semester with composer Rachel Epperly and percussionist Griffin Harvey that was based on the life cycles of mushrooms. In this section I played guitar and projected a Jitter patch that interacted with the signal from my guitar.

I am struggling to find a specific topic that I am interested in pursuing but I think it would be cool to incorporate some elements of dance music/rock/minimalism/hip hop in a multimedia performance. One project that I think emulates some of these musical styles that I continually come back to (and is one of my favorite albums for traveling) is Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works 85-92.


  1. That's a sweet patch you've got there, I'd be really interested to see how you mapped certain parameters between your guitar and your program!

    I just zoned out to this Aphex Twin album for a while--I would be open to exploring this type of musical collaboration with you. I'm also interested in minimalism and techno-like productions.

  2. Ok I heard that you had a giant mushroom as part of the performance and I would like to see said mushroom because I am intrigued....

    A million times yes to Aphex Twin. I wanna make some technomusik

  3. I was at the show and the end of last semester and, man, if I didn't already say this to you right after that thing blew me away. The levels of density of thought, the complete embrace of multidisciplinary thought, the invigorated performances from every member. Yes. Y'all killed it.
    And endless more yes's to Aphex Twin. I don't even know what to say about him. He's such a watershed of my relationship to electronic music. Yes. yes.

  4. I remmeber seeing this performance during the Olivia Block masterclass and I thought that it was one of the coolest things I've seen, as far as live performance goes, in the PAT department. I really love how you tied themes together and used a variety of sounds and ideas in this piece to really tie it all together.

    Also this album is a classic, I'm a huge fan of most of his early stuff. Would be really interested in messing around with some synth stuff and loops to emulate some of his music.
