hello. i’m a musician: composer, performer, educator, sonic explorer.
I compose sounds for people, instruments, objects, buildings, metal rails, and whatever inspires me. Current activity and research topics include: underwater acoustic & soundscapes, site-specific pieces, audio/visual pieces, the politics of hearing, the physicality of sound and ear anatomy, imaginary sounds, tuning, forks, and tuning forks, echo and resonance in musical, political, and social context: from the rhythms of protest chants, to a series of site-specific pieces which calls for active participation, challenges common musical hierarchies, and blurs the boundaries between composer, performer, and audience.
Earned a DMA in music composition from UC Santa Cruz in 2015.
Currently a lecturer/teaching fellow at the University of Haifa, Israel.
Active also as a performer/improviser.
A member/co-artistic director at new-music collective Musica Nova
Founder and member of noise A-cappella choir n o e y e s
Co-founder of KinoEar audio/visual duo
