The Magnetophone is a sound sculpture with 14 guitar strings and 14 homemade electromagnets. Continuously generative, electromagnetic fields make the strings vibrate.
A translation of the MIZARU performance into an Honorarium installation for Burning Man 2013. MIZARU is about life and death, and how the border between life and death exists everywhere.
Created in residence at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. MIZARU is a dance performance with interactive multimedia, exploring life and death, technology and the human body.
Created interactive visuals for Bonnaroo's giant LED clocktower. As people pass by the tower their movements make the glowy waves undulate more. Client: Superfly Presents.
Homemade OSC Controller:
A versatile performance device made with irregular curves, able to control custom written computer apps. It combines both the natural and sythetic with a maple base and a 3D printed top.
An interactive media installation with a stretched sheet of spandex that acts as a membrane interface
sensitive to depth that people
can push into and create fire-like visuals and expressively play music.
A robotic glockenspiel triggered by plucking guitar strings, with beams of light projected on the strings.
Each time a string is plucked a corresponding bell is struck and
a beam of light flows up and down the length of the string.
Purring Tiger - Water in the Desert:
A multimedia/ dance/music performance developed in residence at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

Create colorful particle paint splatter and music with your mouse. Originally created for the first part of Scene 7 in
Water in the Desert.
Draw with particles. Click to change color. Originally created
for Scene 1 of Water in the Desert.
In the performance version dancers' X Y movements are
tracked and draw with the particles on screen. Their movements also trigger piano notes.
Create jagged electric lines and sparks based on mouse position.
Originally created for Scene 2 of Water in the Desert, where dancer controlled sound (via Kinect),
in conjunction with an overhead webcam, control the visual.
Interact with a particle storm. Originally created for Scene 6 of Water in the Desert,
the storm interacts with the dancers' movements, which also control the volume of a vocalist's
live multi-layered loops. The more the dancers move the more cacophonous the sound becomes.
Dancers' movements are captured by two cameras and become waves in a sphere. This is the visual
for the 2nd part of Scene 7 from Water in the Desert.
