Project: Human hearing is pretty mediocre – techniques for listening to hidden nonhuman soundworlds.
I will be building prototypes for interactive music composition systems with invertebrates in soil microhabitats. I am interested in nonhuman hearing perspectives and will be documenting and speculating on sonic entanglements between inter-specific, intra-specific, anthrophonic, and geophonic relations.
I am a composer, percussionist and sound artist with a background in ecology and entomology, & currently a PhD student in Electronic Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I make music and sound art based in ecological research with an emphasis on hidden invertebrate sound-worlds. I present my work in performance with my percussion ensemble, i, on albums, in Web-VR, in galleries & forests, and often contextualize it in print.
