Summoning 

Performance using personal field recordings, inherited objects, hardware electronics and processes of improvisation to gather the disparate and fragmented into new relationships of resonance.

 

Field recordings included: cicadas from my mom’s garden in Texas, the rain on my windshield in west Oakland, my baby squealing in the bath, my brother playing the darbuka, and my aunt translating a song at a family picnic.
