House of the Ax
A long duration work (approx. 3 hours).
A "human installation" that relies on a cooperative effort between audience and performer to co-write a musical language.
A set-length work (approx. 30-40").
A musical narrative that weaves together group-improv strategies & solo compositions, each written by an ensemble member for another, where the ensemble's accompaniment provides an environment for the soloist. However, Crop Rotation does not strive to do away with authorship; instead it aims to underline a multifaceted democracy of sounds, a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Premiered @ Experimental Sound Studio's OSCILLATIONS 2016 festival | November 2015
Musical activity that starts as text.
Speaking is the focal point from which any instrumental action flows. Disparate narratives that combine to create a polyphony of texts (polytextuality), cohered by sounds.

Pop music, Rested-Field style.
