I create sounds. abstracted from its original source.
Sounds the mind cannot so easily categorize.
I often start with concrete sounds from everyday objects that I have an immediate emotional response to; sounds that
I can link to life experiences that have been very important to me, like the sound of me speaking in Tagalog and the sound of the overhead machine.
I also record myself, playing different stuff like the guitar or me humming,
I also live-sample sounds from the space I perform in order to emphasize something . When I work with sound loops on the sampling machine I improvise on top of a preset, composed structure. I like to merge risk with safety.
As I play, turn and twist the knobs and faders, I play, turn and twist my inner landscape.

I started making video as a way of documenting my process.
It gave me the opportunity to communicate, to tell a story from a different perspective.
To twist, expand and enlarge small, seemingly insignificant moments into something bigger. I sometimes use videos in my work to inform and play together with performance space.
