My field of work is music as a mode of resistance which spans an art practice and sound practice. Primarily through collaborations with other artists I have sought to bridge my sound work with retinal art and to make it visible.
My present focus is the relationship between repetition and the regulation, and the eventual arbitrage, of memory. Taking music to be the principal carrier fluid of repetition, I would like to pose the question: is music the medium through which the pumping peristalsis of capital can be most readily disrupted, reversed, and rendered turbulent?
