Performance

My work as a performer is characterized by long-term collaborations, intensive dialogue, and experimentation. Interests include vocal performance, body art, durational work, and avant-garde practices.

Improvisation

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