Composing interactions defined by liminal perceptual and physical contingencies.

A recent work (headphones recommended):

About the piece: collector takes a hypersensitive approach to touch. The keyboard is conceived primarily as a physical environment to be navigated by the pianist in a quasi-indeterminate/exploratory way. Choreographic actions are seeded in this environment for the pianist to execute, which may only occasionally audibly sound. The pianist listens to these resultant sounds, comparing and categorizing them. These decisions in turn impact how the pianist navigates the keyboard: touch is mediated by listening.

Upcoming projects include pieces for mocrep, ekmeles, and ELISION, as well as a short song for Lotte Betts-Dean and Eidit Golder. Past highlights include an intimately staged performance of collector devised by Gwen Rouger at Akademie Schloss Solitude, as well as performances by Adam Tendler at the MATA festival, the Spektral Quartet, and Rage Thormbones.
