PLEXIGLAS SOUND CAGE: DEMO
New Interface for Musical Expression, 2011
Performance with four saxophones, laptop, roving handheld speakers, and soundproof box.
A saxophonist can never hear the true sound he makes with his instrument.
Plexiglas Sound Cage physically manifests this dilemma for the audience. [more]
Site-specific performance/sound-intervention, 2011

Thousands of commuters pass over the Manhattan Bridge every day. As soon as the train exits the
tunnel, signal is restored to cell phones and faces immediately drop into their devices, ignoring the
spectacular view of New York that can be seen only from this vantage point. N-Train Traverse is a
sound-intervention that prompts commuters to appreciate the view. The composition is based on
modular themes that are cued by specific views from the bridge, integrated into the visual score.
Commuters thus watch the skyline as it is played by the musicians.
