An Artist Statement

I think of sound as a phenomenon, as audible manifestation of life. Every sound we hear is the expression of a natural event, itself a description of what happened.

Aside from phenomenological information sounds also contain and deliver information that reveals the uniqueness of a sound source, which helps us distinguish it from all others.

As raw material sound can also function as a stimulus. Russell Frehling describes it as “a massless object with the ability to occupy and define space, and function in three dimensions.”

In short, nature — everything that surrounds us — speaks to us through sound, and the experience of sound makes clearer aspects of how the environment works that would otherwise remain hidden. My artistic output is the result of experimentation guided by this notion of what sound is and the role it plays in the process of developing awareness and understanding, as well as establishing a useful relationship with the external.
