On-site Event June 3rd

A chance realization of audio based around the vibrations of debris and refuse. The events will happen throughout the festival utilizing small vibrating motors, cylindrical amplification, found objects and near by garbage to create “throw away” sculptures. Tiny sounds in large spaces.

A live installation style performance of audio, captured from cell phone screen recordings of scams, fishing, and frauds. All captured media is synthesized through hardware applications.


Installation October 29, 2023
at Torrance Art Museum’s Nomad II
