Sometimes I work with musicians or use their music. I aim to create aural dissonances between 'reading sound' as a form of narrative and 'hearing' it as abstraction. "An inland Soul at Sea" (2003) are hung transluscent forms with a 7 minute soundscape which incorporates sounds and music by four musicians. "Talk Back Pool" (2006) is an interactive work made for two computer keyboards.
