WATERFALL AND PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE, Fredericke, Taylor Gallery, New York, NY, 2004
ECHO LOCATION, The Queens Museum, 2004
WAVETABLE, Frederieke Taylor Gallery, 2003
Sound activated installation of waves and responsive sound whistles uses sustained delays and transposed responses. The Aluminum table structure was made to resonate like as steel drum at multiple frequencies, each resonant to a sub audio frequency to create waves. Tuned resonant filters and compressors listen to the audience sound and respond in phrases, volumes, and pitches in surprising relationships and with waves.

ECHO EVOLUTION, The Kitchen, 2002
This is an excerpt on a video from my exhibition at the Kitchen in NYC.This interactive installation uses custom designed neon tubes . Ultrasonic rangefinders pick up audience position and motion. Light flows and shifts color with motion and stillness of audience. Sound samples morph and locate in space. Sounds are made from samples of spinning objects and digital sound and signal processing.
This is a prologue to the interactive installation of the same name presented by Creative Time at the Anchorage in the summer of 2001. It was part of the last show, Massless Medium, permitted in that amazing space under the Brooklyn Bridge. In only a month or two 9.11 would end all that. This is the story behind the project, as told by Liz Phillips, one of the pioneers of interactive sound art.
