No Where (2018)

This octophonic work shifts the listener between different places and spaces, some authentic, others synthetic, most only inhabited for moments before transporting to another. Ambience tropes (for example, filmic tropes of what archetypal spaces (restaurants, carnivals, offices) sound like) and impossible deformations of recorded and virtual spaces (pushing the ceiling beneath the floor, for example), are juxtaposed and interposed to dis- and un-place the listener.

Premiered at University of Virginia's computer music festival Digitalis 2018.
