Artist Statement

Working with sound as both a medium and a subject, I useĀ dissonance in tangent with noise to challenge preconceptions of what musicality is.

My research into sound ranges from physiology and musicology, seeking to understand how the brain interprets some sound waves as noise and others as expressive, concordant music. I value the fluidity between aural and optical disciplines, often using visual practices to translate between sound and image. Using my musical background as a basis for sound exploration allows me to work backwards, deconstructing rulesĀ imposed on traditional music to expand our understanding of the sonic.
