Playing music in group contexts is what got me working with sound in the first place and though it’s been a few years since I’ve been on stage, working with sound in real-time remains a critical part of what I do. I’ve had the pleasure of performing new works by myself and other composers in solo and ensemble settings.

Selected performances

Rat Drifting

A solo concert of my own works at Arrayspace in Toronto, 7 December 2018, for the Rat Drifting series curated by Martin Arnold. A video recording seems to be available on Vimeo’s livestream archive.

Woodstockhausen

An evening of new music for rock band at the Copper Owl; with the Victoria Composers Collective. I played electric bass in most of the program, including with Annette Brosin in my duo ∥∥∥∥‖∥∣∥‖∥∥∣‖∥∥∥‖∥∥∥‖∥∣‖‖∥. Videos of most of the pieces can be found on YouTube (though sadly not my first performance of Nolan Krell’s glueing these birds to your arms has been great but I’ve grown to hate you).
