I discovered that the most interesting music of all was made by simply lining the loops up in unison, and letting them slowly shift out of phase with each other.
The music that I was playing and writing in those early years, that I was importing to Europe, was quintessentially New York music in a way that I always hoped it would be. I wanted my concert music to be as distinctive as Zappa at the Fillmore East, and I think I ended up doing that.
Words Without Music: A Memoir

Now you can listen to a selection of my electronica directly from the home page.
Soundscapes and electronica are an important part of my video works.
Natural sounds, mixed and edited/transformed, are the base for the soundscapes.
My electronica is simple but I try to make it work well with the pictures, moving and non-moving.
Photography and film - it is all about one picture at a time. I like to explore the movement in a photo and the non-moving parts in a film sequence - and try to combine them into some-thing unexpected.
