Movement Exercise No. 1 for Blindfolded Ensemble is the first in a series of etudes composed to heighten collective awareness and communication within a group. Each exercise form is written as a schematic and is memorized by players in the ensemble. The players are then blindfolded to improvise the content of the piece. Sections are cued through each member’s direct contribution to the collective intention, without any visual or predetermined communication.

Sweet Figeater Surprise is a performative three-record, sculptural box set. The collection is comprised of three main FIGures generated from six distinct ensemble conFIGurations, arranged into individual discs (labeled Fig. 1, Fig. 2 & Fig. 3). Each conFIGuration features a collection of original works or parameters that punctuate, button and launch spontaneous compositions by the ensemble. The conFIGurations are geared at creating dynamic sonic shifts in terms of aesthetic, texture, vibe and genre.
