Apparent Horizon

2014 was a big year for me, artistically, as it saw the introduction of The Leap, several new tracks, and my first public art installation in the form of Apparent Horizon, an immersive audio/visual installation presented on the Boston Common this New Year’s eve.  Apparent Horizon was conceived of by Nathan Lachenmyer who secured funding from Boston Figment in order to create the piece.

You can see a 3d rendering of the piece below. The idea was to have 2x rear-projected screens held at a 90 degree angle in order to provide a sense surrounding and shifting perspective. Nathan brought me on board to incorporate those same senses into the audio realm as well.

Generative Craft: Pattern Making with Processing

As part of my experience at Eyeo this week, I was fortunate enough to take a workshop from the very talented Libs Elliot who masterfully blends generative digital art with the physical world.  Most representative of her work is probably her quilts which are designed in Processing, and then cut and stitched by hand.

The Leap

I’ve embarked on a project with friend and fellow monome enthusiast, Frank Rose, we’re calling The Leap.  This is a record label and event series that will focus on promoting artists who we feel are making contributions to the electronic music scene through innovative production methods or distinctive musical styles.  March 20th saw the first installment of the music series at the Somerville Arts at the Armory.  We’ll have sound up from that show soon. In the meantime, enjoy one of my tracks recorded from that show.

Next show will be on 5/16. Stay tuned!
