MIDI_Face is a MaxforLive device that allows performers to forward, route, process, delay, and gate MIDI messages over the network. It also creates a grid-based visualization so you can track where the MIDI data has migrated in real time. We performed these over zoom using CamTwist, AudioMovers, and Ableton.
For Laptop Ensemble, performed live at the Center for Collaborative Art and Media, March 2020.
Performed remotely with Zoom & AudioMovers, October 2020.

The vocal ensemble LUCERIS performing a new piece at the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Library as part of the Yale College New Music Concert Series.
Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions is a composition for voice and live electronic processing with accompanying visuals. While a vocalist reads Google’s “Terms of Services”, a keyboardist employs granulation techniques, filtering, LPC, and channel-vocoder effects to highlight, humorize, or obfuscate the text. In dramatizing the text in various ways, the piece draws attention to the contradiction between its light and conversational tone and the underlying message as it relates to digital ownership and privacy.
Windows That Won’t

Zone A / Points on a Line
I had the opportunity to work with the dancer & choreographer Rebecca Stenn over a two-month period to create this new piece. It is for piano and live electronics and solo dancer, and it incorporates improvisation in both mediums. It was premiered at the Joyce SoHo as part of the SONiC festival, and subsequently performed at the 92nd Street Y.
