This is a Unity-based video piece, inspired by Reich's Pendulum Music, but with a microtonal tuning based on a 1-3-5-7 combination-product set. The fundamental of this tuning is an upper 2/1 partial of the Schumann resonance 7.83 Hz. This Schumann resonance is basically the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field. Here is a video playlist with some of my other video pieces, as well: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8ZHADWS0bBOvefrLN3gkyA0iLom4s8RZ
Count In is a meditation on the role of individual voices in an imminent post-human environment, based around a recording of Poly-Styrene (from the 70s punk band X-Ray Spex) defiantly shouting the numbers “1-2-3-4.”
Count In combines phasing techniques and just intonation (with a tuning system inspired by La Monte Young’s Well Tuned Piano) and the result is a mixture of Steve Reich, X-Ray Spex, James Tenney, and Sesame Street Pinball Number Counts. The layered iterations of Styrene’s voice are reinforced by the visual presence of corresponding numbers, which slowly change color akin to a James Turrell Skyspace.

Gabi Galloway BFA 3 – Theatre Lysol This piece is a reflection on what I learned in Mike Bryant’s Sex and Death class in regard to feminine hygiene being rooted in sexism and how this can explain why we continue to view contraception, abortion and child care as women’s burden. In the world of sex […]
In this swift hell, firefighters wore upwards of seventy-five pounds of gear, as they walked atop a landscape rendered to burning coal. Guided only by headlights, the firefighters would soak the path in front of them. Every step released a fine silt of red embers and ash that moved weightlessly through the air, accompanied with […]
