I’ll be performing with my group Landed on Saturday 9/26 at the Hammer Museum in LA as part of:
ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AGREE: an exhibition or a concert.
ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AGREE: an exhibition or a concert is a program of back-to-back live performances by local, national, and international sound artists, music collectives, art bands, and visual artists whose practices extend to the production of sound. Conceived as an exhibition in the form of a concert, the continuous program of performances will alternate between two outdoor stages in the Hammer courtyard.
Landed is scheduled in the 7-10PM time slot (PST), see program below. The event will be streamed live at this link:
Known for its deconstructed rock, rhythmic noise, and physically intense live performances, Landed has operated as a performance collective since 1997. Now based in Providence and LA, founding members Shawn Greenlee, Joel Kyack, and Dan St. Jacques will be joined by Bjorn Copeland, Matthew Johnson, and Rick Pelletier. Landed has released material with Load Records, Vermiform Records, and Corleone Records, among others.

Posted, a video of an acoustic piece I wrote for gayageum performed by Kyungso Park. I spent the month of June in Korea as an artist in residence at the Gyeonggi Creation Center (GCC). During my trip, I also participated in a two-week intensive workshop on traditional Korean music at the National Gugak Center in Seoul, where Kyungso gave a first performance of this work. A few days later, back at the GCC, we captured this document.
While in Korea, Kyungso and I also debuted our new electroacoustic improvisation duo titled Soonhweija 순회자 (a.k.a. Circulator). On June 29, we gave a concert at the GCC preceded by a workshop I taught on Pure Data programming. Soonhweija will begin recording an album in August 2015.

On June 3, I performed my piece Substitutions at the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) conference held this year at Louisiana State Univeristy. Earlier this year, I recorded a rehearsal (video posted below) and did some writing for RISD Museum's Manual publication, following a first performance at the RISD Museum on February 26.
