This clip is of a performance from graduate school at NYU in 2001, where I experiment with a custom-made electronic noise instrument I designed & built that can be played without touching it.
This one is a live demonstration of another interactive mixed media instrument I worked on while in graduate school. The project was a joint venture with Jimmy Chung while we were at ITP in 2002.
This performance / installation was during High Desert Test Sites IV in 2006, part of a sprawling series of art exhibitions curated by Andrea Zittel that takes place throughout the Mojave Desert.

ELIPSIS is an open-source toolkit for language education, the study of phonetics, and sound experimentation. It’s also a unique resource with which to experience information in new ways. The unique screen based interface maps out the diverse ways that the human vocal apparatus produces its rich inventory of sounds. This original multi-sensory approach to learning about phonetics was conceived by F. Mathias Lorenz in Madrid in1996, and is under ongoing technical development with the expertise of Jason Soares.
When I moved to Bushwick in 2006, I started teaching some of the local kids how to set up, ride, & maintain skateboards. It wasn’t long before they were shredding on custom-designed decks.
I made this clip for the Brooklyn-based band OBITS. The video chronicles a bizarre experiment conducted with specimens fished out of the Newtown Creek in Greenpoint, one of the most polluted waterways in the nation.
This is a short clip that describes the retrospective art installation I did in March of 2012 at the Disclosed unLocation gallery in South Park, San Diego. The show featured a selection of hand-made & reconfigured electronic gadgets I’ve been traveling around with for the past decade. On display were a number of customized portable audio/visual devices called “Snuitcases”.
Remote Action Sequence Project was a 3-piece band from San Diego consisting of Jason Soares (bass), Rob Crow (guitar/vocals) & myself (drums/gocarts). We each had our own hand-made gocarts, complete with costumes, helmets, and advanced weaponry.
This clip was shot and edited by Topograph Media, taken from a Llama helicopter in September 2009 while shadowing a Eurocopter-145 on a hoist demonstration near Zermatt in the Swiss Alps. The soundtrack is a song called “intrastrings” from Aspects of Physics.
This DIY ensemble of chromatic characters recasts the classic struggle between good and evil into a chaotic choreography of additive and subtractive colors.
