Selected Works

공명 사물놀이 - The Gong People

Gongmyeong Samulnori - The Gong People (resonance samul nori)

Samul nori is a traditional Korean folk music with four performers playing a large gong (꽹과리, Kkwaenggwari), a small gong (징, Jing), an hour-glass drum (장구, Janggu) and a bass drum (북, Buk), which represent lightning, wind, rain and clouds. Normally these instruments are thought of as percussive. We use surface transducers, contact mics and processing to set up feedback loops through our own versions of these instruments to reimagine them as evoloving resonators while still evoking the spirits of lighting, wind, rain, and clouds.

This piece was performed as part of KISS 2019 in Busan, South Korea

Screaming At The Void

Screaming At The Void was an on-line interactive installation inviting people to vent their frustrations through the cathartic and Scandanavian practice of shouting. Their shouts were digitised and virtually sent across the internet as packets of data bouncing off distant servers. The resulting delayed, scrambled reply was played back. The void has heard you.

It was exhibited as part of the 2021 Piksel festival in Bergen, Norway.
