based in New York and working with the soprano saxophone, open-circuit
electronics, and a 1/4" tape player. These three instruments and
areas of interest do not overlap in performance or practice aside from
the saxophone being used in conjunction with the tape player/feedback
to produce music based around the phenomena of psycho-acoustic structures.
Works with improvisation in music and other contexts, and in this area
he has performed all over the US in many situations and maintains regular
playing relationships with artists such as David Kendall, Chistopher Cogburn,
Jeremy Drake, Gust Burns, Dan Breen, Andrew Lafkas, Jonathan Zorn, Rachel
Thompsen, and many others.
Having spent the years of 1997 to 2005 in Portland, Oregon, and being
very involved in the creative improvised music community of the Northwestern
US, many fruitful and long term musical relations were produced such as
the duo GOD with Leif Sundstrom, an electronic collaboration with guitarist
Doug Theriault, and various works with Jean Paul Jenkins and Joseph Foster.
During this time he was also continually developing a solo language on
the saxophone and with electronics that is now being applied to a search
for something beautiful in form and content, whether in collaboration
or solo work.
