I'm a New York City based musician making experimental music/art. As a performer I'm interested in extended technical & physical demands, noise, signal processing, and long-term collaborations with other artists. I make my own work about the internet, glitch, conceptual & archival processes, usually with live electronics &/or video. Lately I've been making things involving live computer animation, experimental tuning systems, and integrating modular synthesizers.
