Artist Statement

I am an artist who “thinks with my ears”.  I experience of the world around me through sound.   I listen before I look. Each vibration that reaches my ears has meaning and context.  Decoding the cultural waveform is my life’s work; forming a “Hearing Perspective” of the world. Cage’s “Silence”, Schaeffers’ ”Tuning of the World”, Pythagoras, Helmholtz, Lao Tsu, Quan Yin, and researchers into the cognitive science of hearing, have inspired me. Forty years of sound art, music, collaborations in theater, film, dance, museum, architectural and virtual reality projects have given me rich and varied experience of how sound shapes space. I look forward to sharing this experience as our cultural pendulum swings away from purely visual thinking to include all the senses.
