Artist and writer working with sound and the specifics of location. Through his work with Errant Bodies Press he has co-edited the anthologies “Site of Sound: Of Architecture and the Ear”, “Writing Aloud: The Sonics of Language”, and “Surface Tension: Problematics of Site”. He initiated and curated the Beyond Music series and festivals from 1997 – 2002 at Beyond Baroque Literary/Arts Center in Los Angeles, and in 2001 he organized “Social Music”, a radio series for Kunstradio ORF, Vienna. His installation work has been featured in exhibitions and festivals internationally, including “Sound as Media”(2000) ICC Tokyo, Bitstreams (2001) Whitney, “Pleasure of Language”(2002) Netherlands Media Institute, and “Undercover”(2003) Museet for Samtidskunst, Roskilde, and his writings have been included in various books and journals, including “Experimental Sound and Radio” (MIT) and “Soundspace: Architecture for Sound and Vision” (Birkhäuser). He presented a solo exhibition at Singuhr galerie in Berlin (2004), and an experimental composition for pirate drummers as part of Virtual Territories, Nantes (2005). His ongoing project to build a library of radio memories, “Phantom Radio”, will be presented fall 2006 as part of Radio Revolten, Halle Germany. He is the author of “Background Noise” (Continuum 2006). Sound is inherently and unignorably relational: it emanates, propagates, communicates, vibrates, and agitates; it leaves a body and enters others; it binds and unhinges, harmonizes and traumatizes; it sends the body moving, the mind dreaming, and the air oscillating. It seemingly eludes definition, while having profound effect. Sound teaches us, by always being temporal, spatial, and relational, that space is more than its apparent materiality, that knowledge is festive, alive as a chorus of voices, and that to produce and receive sound is to be involved in connections that make privacy intensely public.
