I build listening rooms that focus on small audiences, intimate performance, and high-fidelity sound. The specificity of installation art allows me to craft a listening experience with far more control than a concert atmosphere through the use of self-designed and built speaker systems, for which my compositions are tailored. This paper outlines my practice as a visual artist and musician. It serves to provide context and insight into my visual and sonic decisions.
