- performance -
Live, I build kinetic ambient-industrial soundscapes using
a variety of acoustic instruments and toys to generate
sounds that are manipulated, layered, and sent out
into a multi-channel surround-sound system.

- bands -
Worked for many years with Jeff Greinke, and also in a trio with
Jeff and Paul Hoskin (bass clarinet), playing guitar, hand-turned
turntable, live processing and sampling keyboards

Led three bands- STORM, a noise/funk band; cloudhouse, an
ambient groove band; and Bat Logic, a trip-hop jazz trio
featuring Jessica Lurie and Ed Pias

Was a founding member of the Metaphonics, a found-metal
percussion/performance ensemble

Played guitar in the Jesse Bernstein Band and an early version of
Sky Cries Mary

Did lead vocals and turntable in Color Anxiety, a muscular
prog/funk band

Still do an occasional solo or duo show, but mostly I'm involved
in recording other musicians as well as my own odd music.
