News

Contemporary classical magazine I CARE IF YOU LISTEN reviewed SPOR festival and my latest work Vivarium. Check out the review here.

Vivarium premiered in May 2017, and was performed by myself and Anna Jalving. Amplified, magnified pomegranates are dissected with kitchen utensils, medical instruments, and fingers to explore tactile facets of the culinary, the surgical, and commodity fetishism. As the pomegranates disintegrate and insides become outsides, the performers strive for a heightened tactile familiarity with the fruit, reflecting a dual curiosity/repulsion toward the workings of one's own viscera, and the partial dissolving of subjectivity that accompanies these affects.

 

New electro-acoustic work

Subsong is influenced by future bass, glitch pop, and acousmatic music. I recorded many of the singing and clapping samples in an enclosed space of smooth concrete, on Laguna Mountain, Southern California. Sounds of the voice and body percussion are pulverized, distorted, and squeezed through claustrophobic and cavernous spaces, digital nightmares and underground bunkers.

 

How to survive a 100-hour workweek

This musical theater work explores bodily and vocal relationships to labor, institutional discipline, and glitch in late capitalism. Laborers (played by Hillary Jean Young, Ashley Cutright, and Jonathan Nussman) struggle to stay afloat amidst snippets of inspirational advice from iconic voices and lifestyle video bloggers. A fourth laborer (played by Constantin Basica) operates a wooden crank that feeds advice through the speakers at different speeds. The ending chorus, To Choke, unfolds in a surreal soundscape of church organ, arctic seals, a Sibelius symphony, a marching band playing Christmas hymns, and charcoal crackling.
