Noise is music's dreams of us."
Morton Feldman 1958

The work in this portfolio is divided into the two main categories of sound installation and electronic and electroacoustic composition for fixed media (tape). Furthermore, I am interested in live improvisation and live electronic pieces. A separate section links to various software which I have developed and published as open source, as well as academic writing.
