My audio work, Water Music, is installed in the bathrooms on the lower level of the Contemporary Art Center. A map to all installations will be provided at the Weston Gallery of the Aronoff Center for the Arts. For more information check out the Aural Latrinalia Facebook Page. The works will be installed for 6 weeks.
This project is produced by local, untethered curatorial collective, NEAR*BY. For this six-site exhibition, they have brought the least likely kind of art into the least likeliest of locations: sound art in restrooms.
Here's a link to my Water Music #3.

The Making of a Botanist: Joseph Dalton Hooker 1817-1911
This is the centenary celebration year of the death of Joseph Dalton Hooker,famed 19th century botanist and explorer of India and the Himalayas, sonof William Jackson Hooker, friend and confidant of Charles Darwin, andDirector of Kew Gardens in London. His contributions to botany are immense, especially in the area of rhododendron and orchid research,but in other areas as well. Find out, through the holdings of the Lloyd Library and Museum, what it takes to makea Great Botanist.
EXHIBIT DATES: OCTOBER 8—DECEMBER 30, 2011
From poppies to primulas, there is a direct link from the botanicals native to the Himalayas and to flowers found in our home gardens. Thanks to the explorations of J. D. Hooker, plants that were at one time exotic and unknown are now a common part of our domestic landscape.
In my work, I have collected audio from the domestic natural soundscape and composed audio pieces based on these sounds. These compositions are each presented with a visual analog, focusing on the oft ignored and uncommon aspects of our everyday sound world. Just as Hooker’s work had the effect of taking what was once uncommon and making it common, my art takes the common and reveals it as uncommon, offering a fresh perspective to our aural and visual world.
Four Movements from Twelve Acousmatic Miniatures are included in this exhibit. Go here to listen to music samples.
