Secret Soup Performance in Flint MI


Secret Soup is in Your Shoes, (Multi-Channel Installation) All that Glitters, Solo Project House, Newark NJ


The Secret Soup is a digital real-time system for improvised audiovisual composition. Referencing audiovisual synthesis techniques, custom interfaces control LFO waveforms and looper with 1:1 audiovisual counterpart. Lines move across the frame while the oscillators are played to create an audiovisual gesture.

In a constant state of revision, the process has been realized as solo audiovisual performance, immersive interactive projection mapped installation, gallery installation, and as a score for intermedia performance ensemble.

The improvisatory nature of the score allows for constant recombination, breaking down the relationship between preconceived meanings and conceptions.  Language is sublimated into feeling, tone, texture so the habit of its construction can be stripped and a new way can be found.  Emulating the basic relationships of electronic signals allows me to “speak” in this energy. In this way, new meaning can be explored, probing in real-time for the sudden revelation that can occur through an integrated and fully authentic gesture.
