music performance video
This show was about infusing everyday objects with sounds. For the performance I generated all of the audio with two items found in our junk drawer. A plastic measuring cup and a small tin box. Each object had a contact mic and were being struck by solenoid motors that I controlled with a touch pad.
This is an edited clip from my performance at the 2014 No Idea Festival. Thanks JC for the video!

Portable Columbia GP-3 Plastic Turntable, Bobby McFerrin Record.
Monday morning after a holiday weekend, I sat downtown and quietly played Bobby McFerrin’s: “Don’t Worry Be Happy” for salarymen and women going to work in an effort to use Pop Music’s inherent hooks to subliminally alter these men and women’s day for the better.
