Landscape: Ghost (Home) is a recomposition of Landscape: Home for the Ghost Ensemble. This is another step in the ongoing interest I have to create a mimetic version of Haruki Murakami’s “over there” or “other world” in sound and image. I wrote a paper concerning this, “Mimesis, Murakami, and Multimedia Art: Parallel Worlds in Performance,” that was presented at the 40 Years of Murakami conference at Newcastle University, UK and published in Leonardo Music Journal.Continue reading →

Instructions for a Home Invasion is an installation for text, video projections, speakers, and found objects created by Teresa Carmody, Madison Creech, Chaz Underriner and Terri Witek in 2018. The installation is a meditation on the space of the Booker House in response to poetic instructions—we bring objects, sound, and images from our own various houses into this temporarily shared unoccupied space, itself a portion of a much larger university-owned house.

In July 2013 I taught a workshop/summer-camp at Oil and Cotton in Oak Cliff, Dallas. The mom blog at D magazine called it “the Coolest Summer Camp Ever” and it was a great experience teaching sound art to 10-18 year old students. This is the blurb for the class:
The five-day camp designed for students ages 10-18 provides an in-depth exploration of making art using the sounds around us and household tools.
Students will learn to use free or inexpensive tools to explore themselves and the world around them using the perspective of sound, and they’ll make a self-portrait by recording and combining the sounds of their daily lives.
Campers will also discover how to make music using text scores, graphic scores, free improvisation and how to make their own instruments by learning about the history of sound art and electronic music.
By the end of the camp, students will bring home a CD of their sonic self-portrait.
I’m very pleased about the student’s self-portraits from the class as well as our collaboration projects. You can listen to my self-portrait example and the class pieces below:
