Politics I will receive another performance at the Association for Technology in Music Instruction’s 2023 Conference at 3:15PM on Thursday October 26th. The performance will occur in the Pinecrest Meeting Room. Hope to see you all there!
It’s been such an honor and joy seeing how much life my work, Politics I, has been getting! Coming up, the piece will also be performed at the SEAMUS national conference here in NYC in April! I’ll also be giving a SEPARATE presentation on the work, describing the participatory sonification system that underpins the work and how that enables the audience to engage, concretely, with a politics of aesthetic preference. Get those THUMBS READY to text and get ready to compete over the shape of the work!
More details, including date and time of both the performance and paper presentation, will be coming soon, but even more importantly, I can’t wait to see all the amazing performances and interesting research that everyone is doing!
Super excited to be back with friends at the Australasian Computer Music Conference for both an Artist Talk and a performance of Politics I. There will be quite a few housekeeping updates to the software, but most notable will be Discord integration for users without twitter or for those who can’t text US numbers!

Very excited to be sharing my research, “Dissensus, Refusal and Participatory Music: Negation and Rupture in Crowd in C,” at CIM’22. The conference’s theme this year is “participation” (very apt for my work!). I’ll be presenting on panel 5A, on Thursday, June 9th. You can find out more information at the conference website here:
I’ll be presenting research on participation, political theory, and music technology that I have been working on for the past several years at both the Music and Democracy Study Days: Rethinking Participatory Processes Through Music, and the British Forum for Ethnomusicology and Royal Musical Association Research Students’ Conference in January. The title of the paper is “Dissensus, Refusal and Participatory Music: Negation and Rupture in Crowd in C,” which I have been developing for an invited chapter in a volume on post-politics and the aesthetic imagination. I am really excited for some fruitful talks that develop my thinking on topics that my music is explicitly engaging with.
