Soundscapes and

Sampling.

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.

Video Work

 

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.
