Areas of focus with supporting instruments and prototypes.
From very small to several feet in diameter, membranes (just like our ears) are pressure sensitive in their responsiveness.
Solar Components are light and radiation sensitive. They can be assigned to various features but are best used over hours of observation.
Inductive Instruments use EMF as their primary point of expression.
Vibratory instruments focus on the oscillation and frequency of physical objects and how they translate to our perceptual understanding.
The Tape Lathe and its permutations harvests sounds from a predetermined spool of magnetically transferred data.
The Tierods are a series of interfaces to standard guitar pedals and instrument/line level tools. It brings the quality of sustained mechanical oscillation and the immediacy of percussion.
Mumbles is a modularized set of circuit bent, six voice multi band receivers. Each voice is made from hand held transistor radios and each interacts with a matrix of intentional diode interference.
Stipplers generate rhythmic sub textures and bridge the acoustic machine/human divide. They are electromechanical in nature, primarily solenoids and servo assemblies which are recorded live.
