Sex and Death

Three-minute spin on time-lapse phonography. Fragments, questions, and the banal. Life stories and other accidents.Thumbnail image credit: Dan Anderson






Rabble Rousers

Touching on ethics, justice, democracy, and global citizenship, Rabble Rousers explores the notion of protest as a spontaneous installation of improvised 'music' in public space. Thumbnail image credit: Stan Jourdan






All in Time

Guided by science and science fiction, All In Time traverses the timeless mystery of time itself. Thumbnail image credit: Paulo Martel






Power and Freedom

A round-the-world tour of protests in Canada, England, France, Spain, Ukraine, the United States, and beyond. This radiophonic work was inspired by contemporary composer Luigi Nono's use of fragmented and layered political texts, as well as his method of treating 'real world' artifacts as potential music.

You

This one-minute work is built from micro-edits of the word “you.” One syllable, three letters, and a broad spectrum of sound and connotation.





Forest to Desert

An audio doodle about this phrase: "Humankind is preceded by forest, and followed by desert."





Ad Absurdum

A herd of marketing hits, clichés and platitudes, featuring a chorus of cats and two pounds of Velveeta.





Lack of Proper Words

A study of the sounds people make to fill silence. This one-minute piece incorporates reiterations, hesitations, and various verbal crutches.Thumbnail image credit: NinaSaurusRex





Pay no Attention to that Man Behind the Curtain

This collage mixes printing press rhythms and spoken word with interview scraps that would usually be edited out of a journalistic radio segment, including material that draws attention to the technical and interpersonal machinations of reporting. It's a behind-the-scenes view of journalism, which is a process of editing and selecting, rather than transmitting a complete record to the public.Thumbnail image credit: Status Frustration
