I fuse raw recordings of political struggle, battlefield audio, and oral testimonies into protest symphonies, which is a form of activist sound.

Rooted in overtly political soundscapes, activist sound addresses, examines, and attempts to redress social injustice through documentation, listening, improvisation, composition, and performance. This definition is provisional.

The N30 works start the first cycle (links take you to a soundcloud playlist); the second cycle includes Two Secret Wars; released by Public Record, Wallingford Food Bank (2008) and the quadraphonic version of Live at Occupy Wall Street N15 M1 S17 comprise cycle three; and the fourth cycle remains in progress and includes Fit the Description.
