Music and sound have been a driving force in my life since I was a child. Music often inspires my work into being. I'm not formally trained in music but I am drawn to use sound in my work through producing, performance, curating, recording, making and collaborating.
I've collaborated with the artists listed below. I added links to create a sort of playlist of songs that draw me to their work or songs that had a connection to my work, in some cases original collaborations. I'm grateful and humbled to work with these artists.
Colter Jacobsen and Tomo Yasuda of Coconut
John Dietrich of Deerhoof
Heather Trost and Jeremy Barnes of A Hawk and a Hacksaw
Rosie Hutchinson and Drake Hardin of Teetotum
Gyda Valtysdottir of Mum
I had the great honor of working with seniors in end-of-life care to produce audio content for my installation at Meow Wolf. The seniors were part of the artist group Life Songs. I am working on making some of that content and other work from the installation soundtrack into a CD/digital download.
