1. THROUGH THE GOLDEN GATE SOUNDWALK (2013) (49:43 total, 3 minute excerpt)
In 2012-2013, I was commissioned to create an audio tour of the Golden Gate District of Oakland, CA, an area of Oakland undergoing rapid change. A detailed description of the MP3 audio tour is provided on the web link below.
The beginning few minutes may be most interesting to listen to. There are many gaps intentionally left in for the experience of noisy sections of the blocks or for just moments of listening that will not make sense without actually taking the tour in the Golden Gate District of Oakland, CA. Ideally, there would be another grant to add a mobile app to continue the project online so there is a place for all of the interviews, photos, and continuous documentation by the community. The future goal of this project is the kind of multi-media projects that I'd like to focus on at Brown. I'd like to be able to create mobile apps that can hold all the data that the soundwalks and audio tours collect by engaging the public about their community.
In 2012, I was asked to compose a piece for the San Francisco Tape Music Festival taking place in January of 2014. I submitted a soundscape based on my feelings about my experiences at Occupy Oakland, and I performed it "live" and diffused it over 16-speakers at the ODC Theater in San Francisco. Detailed information about the piece can be found by clicking the title of the piece below.
