Stethoscope ScoreGraphic Score which is activated by the Stethoscope. The Copper and Aluminum foil “score” carries audio signal which is picked up when the modified Stethoscope interacts in close proximity. The stethoscope is outfitted with a magnet which causes audio transduction into the stethoscope when interacting with the audio signal. This is a two channel composition (hence “2-part”): The copper carries one signal and the aluminum another.
Printed CircuitsThis project explores the technical, design, and aesthetic possibilities of 2-D, flexible audio speaker technology. The premise underlying this exploration is the idea that sound can be thought of as a physically immediate, transparent and embodied material. The end goal for me is the use of this material for my art practice: Sound Art, Installation, and Composition. This project includes not just research but also finished art

Laptop Performancehmmm . . I call it a “laptop” music performance. But not what you think. Yes, i make music with a laptop. By destroying it with implements of destruction. Thanks to Meyer Sound for the donation of destroyable elctronics! (No useful electronics were harmed during the performance.)
