The past ten years of work have resulted in 2 solo electroacoustic CDs, 2 compilation CDs, 3 videos, and 23 sound generating kinetic sculptures.
The CDs include “The Door Project” compilation CD, Alta Sound, Cdemist Ltd in 2001 and Electroschock Presents”, a compilation CD with Electroshock Records 2003, as well as a solo CD release: Twin Towers Electroshock Records 2010. A 2002 Composition Fellowship was received from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. All of my compositions have been heard internationally on radio broadcasts, accompanying interviews, and in concert halls.
In 2004 I began creating sound installations. Upon request of NJ Governor James McGreevey, a collaborative interactive 9/11 Memorial was proposed for Liberty State Park. In 2006 I won the overall prize in KAO International Kinetic Art Competition. Of the 23 installation works created, some were completed during artist-in-residence programs at Newark Museum and Peters Valley Craft Center. 15 of these works were chosen for a 3 month exhibition at the Hunterdon Arts Museum (Clinton, NJ) in 2010. Another piece, “The Little Woman”, was selected by Fuller Crafts Museum to be shown on tour with The Perfect Fit: Shoes That Tell a Story, 2008 through 2011. Other exhibitions include: International Computer Music Conference Stony Brook University, New York 2010; New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival and Conference, CUNY Graduate Center New York 2010; Salvage: Reclaiming Recycling Phillips Museum of Art, Lancaster, PA 2009.
