- 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.
I also project my images as large as possible, typically filling the wall behind thestage.

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.
