Performer

My work as a performer has involved many long-term collaborations with musicians where the final result is arrived at through a process of dialogue and experimentation. In am particularly interested in vocal performance, but am also interested in body art, durational work, and avant-garde practices.


Intensive Projects

The following are videos and links to more information for projects that I have been involved in which involved an intensive collaboration and/or development in order to arrive at a realization. All links will take you to a hub which contains documentation on the work undertaken for the project.

Improviser

On occasion I record improvisations. These improvisations are typically initiated because I am trying to work through, and bring to the surface, a musical idea. They are sometimes used as the foundational material for my composed work. In some instances, they are commentary on something I have read or experienced.
