I’m back at the Adventure Science Center this Thursday with a Creative Code demo and Interactive/Participatory Art and Music experiences as part of the Make Music Nashville Festival!
Come out and play! (I may even be able to let you bring instruments…..working on that)
I will be set up in the big hall just left of the entrance.
FREE! Thursday June 21 3pm
There will be fun music events all day and night all over the city. Here is a link to the other projects at the Science Center
I have just been added as a performer for the Ga Tech SEAD artists concert April 21 and I will be bringing my Arduino Drum duet!
|I am thrilled to have ConCentrics 3.0 installed at Nashville’s Adventure Science Center. I have recoded it to include 4 Wii remotes (which I encourage you to use all at once) and it now includes additional shapes and fills if you hit the A buttons on each unit.
The White remote controls the triple theremin and the color wave.Tag with #concentrics so I can find you and if you have a group going, let me know and I will try to meet you down there.
Interactive installations celebrating
Women in Music Technology
April 21st at Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center
|On April 21 I will be visiting Georgia Tech to install several
interactive projects at the Ferst Center for their Women in Music Technology event. My plan is to bring the robotic drum, Constellation and ConCentrics. Please tell your Atlanta friends!I am making plans for a beginning creative code workshop here in Nashville also so please let me know if you might be interested. I think it will be late April but I’m still firming things up.
Thanks for tuning in and Happy Spring!
A newly expanded version of my Wii remote drawing composition is at Nashville’s Adventure Science Center through May 13.
I developed the code to include 4 remotes instead of the usual 2 and there is now an option to fill in the circles and square animations. I am liking the improvements!
If you post any pix please tag with #concentrics so that I can see your lovely artwork!
After intermission Robbie Lynn Hunsinger’s Eclipse was performed. Hunsinger’s work “draws on traditions of free improvisation, Appalachian fiddle techniques, and contemporary classical influences” to create a programmatic collage accompanied by visualizations projected on the screen behind. From the strange instrumentation (music box piano, Tibetan singing bowls) to eerie electronics, the performance was mesmerizing.

chatterbird has commissioned me to write a multimedia chamber music piece. It has been quite the challenge and adventure to write for a small chamber group and also to strictly be a composer (and VJ) this time. I have really enjoyed the work and am looking forward to the premiere on
Thursday December 7, 8pm at Ingram Hall @ Vanderbilt University!

Tickets are $20 available online or free for Vandy students and faculty.
Details along with map and parking info are here.
Please come out if you can and if you have any soft lit and colorful glow sticks or other not very bright glowy devices please bring them. I’m hoping to have a part for you! Feel free to email me with questions!
A big thanks to all of you who came out to play with Constellation! It was so much fun watching people dance and twirl and play with this project. It am honored to report that it won a Best of Nashville 2017 award from the Nashville Scene!
Article on Nashville’s Fall Classical schedule mentions my upcoming work with Nashville’s contemporary chamber group chatterbird.
I am very excited to be working on my largest orchestration to date. This will be a debut of a multimedia commission with projections for small chamber orchestra.
more to come!
December 7 concert date at Vanderbilt
So I am taking my new friends from Constellations out for a spin today at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville. There is a large maker day event with MTRAS and NashMicro and I will be joining them around 1 in the main auditorium – to the left before the ticket counters. This is the free part of the museum.
More official dates will be posted soon!
I have created a brand new interactive audiovisual animation using the Xbox Kinect and there are 6 characters: SunSynth, Glide, Spike, CatEye, FireFly and BlueGhost.
I am so excited to be fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas! Currently, I am raising funds for “Conversations with Cranes,” a musical composition and interactive video project supported in part by the Puffin Foundation.
I am making field recordings of Cranes at several of their stopover points in the US, recording their calls and capturing video. My composition will feature conversations between these calls and Western and Eastern oboes. There will be an interactive video piece in this series as well.
Your donation towards this work is now tax deductible!
Thank you Fractured Atlas!
