Abstract (Summary)

When I hear music it often takes me back to a significant place and time in my life. I am exhilarated by various styles of music from hardcore metal to classical. I have some sort of affinity to each type. Music is such an important part of our culture and how we view the world. In our daily lives we often hear a song on the radio or play a song on our devices that triggers some meaning or feeling. Our choices in music can say a lot about our personality, how we define ourselves within society, or simply how we feel. In these works I am embracing my own personal musical identity, as well as expressing these ideas throughout each piece.

My projects include a video installation of an abstracted musical score, a mobile device application used as an instrument, a sculptural installation of sound and a mobile device application that assesses creative input.
