We Are Sitting In A Room

Inspired by Alvin Lucier's "I Am Sitting In A Room," this composition was created collaboratively by 12 students in my Production as Composition class at CalArts, currently "sheltering in place" at locations all around the globe.
It started with a room tone...Then each student contributed a harmonic of 60 Hz and a B flat.
I mixed everything together at my home studio, and then we sent that mix around and passed it from student to student, who each re-amplified and re-recorded it in the space that they were currently occupying and sent it to the next student (picking up environmental noise and resonant frequencies with each iteration).

Each song, lyrically and sonically, represents a different time period, but all are reflections of life as a whole. Beginning with “Liftoff/Zephyr”, we rise into a period of birth and infancy, of wonder and innocence, carrying into […]

“The Net and the Self is an interactive music and dance installation mirroring our networked society. The audience enter in a room illuminated by UV blacklights where dancers and musicians interact through an amplified harp that has its strings connected with fluorescent fishing lines attached to the walls. The installation is not a static, fixed […]

This project is a reflection of the gestures we perform on a routine basis in order to interact (as the trigger and the data input) with networked devices such as smartphones and laptops. These gestures are abstracted/flattened in the design process and transformed into online behaviors. This habit-formation process only takes us a few attempts […]
