Guardians of the Harmonitrees

I had a ton of fun collaborating with artist Sky Macklay to compose a work to perform with her Harmonitrees installation at the Hand Art Center during her residency at Stetson University. I created the score in photoshop for musicians to play with the different harmonitrees:

I also interviewed Sky about her work and the installation for the Hand Art Center’s archives:

Sandra Stetson Aquatic Center (SSAC) Audio Stream

As a part of the Stetson Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience (IWER), my colleague Nathan Wolek and I have started an acoustic ecology lab and a project of audio streams in places of interest in central Florida. Our audio intern on this project has been Jose Moncayo Arteaga.
The first stream we have gotten running as a part of the Locus Sonus soundmap project is at the Sandra Stetson Aquatic Center on Lake Beresford in Deland, Florida. The SSAC is a center for scientific research centering on environmental and water issues and also houses the Stetson rowing team.
We are in the process of installing more streams in local and state parks to showcase the unique sounds of central Florida. Here are some images of us testing our stream in the summer of 2020 at Lake Beresford.

GreyWing Ensemble – nature forms I

I’m really pleased to share GreyWing Ensemble’s fantastic rendition of nocturne series: 4 on their latest release, nature forms II’m really happy with the recording that Lindsay Vickery put together—recording the piece in an interesting sonic environment outside of Perth, Australia is a context I never imagined while composing the piece, but that works wonderfully. The ensemble’s playing on this recording is also fantastic.  Continue reading →
