Long overdue. NEW WEBSITE featuring 100+ of my sound installations, downloadable scores, streamable albums and audio works, and other projects. Not every work i...s up, but this is mostly everything from the past 19 years of work. Best to view on a desktop for the full experience. Thank you to Suzanne Kite for helping me design this and Peter Mezensky for hosting.

Death Convention Singers: Brujas limited re-issue CD is available now at

Originally released as Sssk #30, this reissue, in co-operation with Dizziness of Freedom, is the last chance to own a physical copy of Death Convention Singers' 2007 recording: Brujas

Brujas was recorded in total darkness and by invitation only. The players were unaware of one another's identities, and multiple players entered and departed during the recording. The result is a brooding meditation of improvisational noise, created by unknown friends and strangers, ephemeral and lost in time and identity, and which can never be repeated.
