About what I do: My work, the offspring of my love affair with sound, incorporates murky atmospheres, everyday speech, unusual field recordings, and an array of instruments deployed in maniacal recombinant polyphony.
formal bio & CV
Contact me for a CV (request a 6 page short version or the complete 24 page document) as well as for high-resolution photos for press and publicity. A prose version of my CV:
My most recent interview (2013) appears in one of my go-to blogs Ear Room. In 2010, I did a short Q&A in 2010 for one of my favorite shows, Some Assembly Required, a podcast devoted to recycled sound, plunderphonics, and sampling. Another interview – collaged with many fellow sound artists – appears in the long-awaited Sound Generation, an ebook published by Autonomedia.
Although the text of my conversation with Kalvos and Damian appeared in a 2010 issue of eContact!, it’s actually a transcription of a 2001 interview. We talked about then-recent pieces such as cocaine and Three Camels for Orchestra.
In 1999, I answered a few questions for an absolutely inspiring issue of monk mink pink punk, which featured artist interviews and writing about Ana-Maria Avram, Eric Cordier, Iancu Dumitrescu, Francisco López, Giancarlo Toniutti, and others. My first interview spanned two issues of Dead Angel in the mid-1990s.
