Sound

1/3

I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to compose and create film scores and work as a sound designer for a number of projects, both professionally and as part of my curriculum at CalArts. I've long had a passion for film, and love the process of working with directors to augment their work with my music and sound contributions.

A Multidimensional Sound Controller

Peer Reviewed and Published: NIME 2020

SQUISHBOI is a continuous touch controller for interacting with complex musical systems. The instrument is best utilized as a tool for actively designing abstraction and forming a relative control structure within a given system, one which allows for intuitive gestural control beyond what can be accomplished with conventional musical controllers.

A Synesthetic Multimedia Installation

Sound Paint is a concept that I created in 2017 and presented as an installation at the 2017 CalArts Expo. Sound Paint allows users to create digital images and animations using a stylus as the brush and the sonic range of their voice as the pallet. It is currently being developed for marketing as an app for computers and tablets.

User experience and design-thinking strategies have always been essential components in my creative process. To me, UX is about much more than just optimizing; it's also about creating user experiences that surprise and delight.
