Our late summer show at Phase Space was on Saturday, August 27! I had an excellent time performing as part of REALITY ORP, a new collaborative project with Andrei Jay. I performed live with liquids for the first time, and combined that with analog video processing. Our friend Rob Feulner from Montréal also came down to show installation work and do a performance! And there were multiple glowing polyhedra, so that's always a plus.

On Friday July 1, I performed a collaborative audiovisual set with Matthew Ryals. The video and sound was interactive via control voltage signals from Matthew's modular synthesizer interacting with my modified video hardware. The show was at Littlefield in Gowanus, and celebrated album releases by both Matthew Ryals and Chloe Alexandra Thompson. It also featured excellent performances from live-coder Melody Loveless, dark synthscaper Brian Wenner, and experimental electronic musician Chloe Alexandra Thompson.

In addition to our collaboration on the performance, Matthew Ryals and I also worked together recently on a music video for one of the tracks of his new album, Impromptus in Isolation.

2022-05-07 ♦ HEXAFLORALIA at Phase Space

Friday May 7 was our spring show at Phase Space! We hosted a delightful evening of multimedia art installations and audiovisual performances. We were really glad that the event was successful despite the sudden spell of bad weather that rolled past us that weekend. I did a live set with fellow Phase Space organizers Andrei and Irfan as NEW DELUSION, in which we performed acoustic instruments with live electronic processing, with visual oscillations on a modified Vectrex display. Cskonopka came down from Boston to play a powerful solo audiovisual set, and Insomniac Hotel played a beautiful ambient set with live visuals by ÉMU. We also had a video installation by Monica Panzarino, and a collaborative installation combining sound, glass, and light art by Valeria Divinorum and Camilla Padgitt-Coles. It was an exciting confluence of creativity and community that I was honored to be a part of.

2022-03-05 ♦ Live video performance for Ambient Church

On Saturday, March 5, I performed live visuals for Ambient Church, featuring atmospheric music by Suzanne Ciani and Lori Scacco. The projection mapping was done by Eric Epstein, who created custom mattes of the space to allow us to activate the architecture with my morphing video feedback patterns and oscillations, mixed in with live video of Suzanne's Buchla performance. The quadrophonic sound system further spatialized the audiovisual experience. It was certainly a memorable show!
