in linen, line in - first realized 2012. Interactive installation for a number of canvases caked in contact mikes fed into various effects pedals and MAX patches. The duration is variable. Users draw or paint or etch on the canvases, unleashing any number of sounds, with the conceptualization that the user will engage in a positive feedback loop with sonic gesture influencing physical gesture, and vice versa. The first iteration of this was at the Columbia Museum of Art in 2012 with two 36"x48" canvases fed into jury-rigged, randomizing, and possibly electrically hazardous cheapo effects pedals and pumped out of some 10" concealed domes after going through some 40-watt amps. Bitchin'.
