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.

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.
