My interests in music, media, and art are eclectic and wide ranging, including: musical design, simplicity, interactive systems, baroque organology, the theory of musical media, free culture & free software, machine learning & artificial intelligence, psychoacoustics, media activism, improvisation, the human voice, tuning theory & temperaments, and electro-acoustic luthiers. I also love to play the guitar and harmonica and sing old folky hymn tunes.
I hold a PhD in music with an emphasis in new media from UC Berkeley. I have studied composition with Edmund Campion, Jorge Liderman, Cindy Cox, Josh Levine, Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez, and Ron Caltabiano. I have also studied psychoacoustics and computer music with David Wessel, improvisation with Myra Melford, and classical voice with David Gordon.
Currently I’m writing music and recording with Since.
