This week, I’m traveling to Quito, Ecuador to perform at the XIV Festival Ecuatoriano de Música Contemporánea.

I’ll  be performing Radiation Day on September 14, 2018, at the Teatro Variedades “Ernesto Albán”, and giving a workshop entitled “Embodied Listening” at the Academia Ecuatoriana de la lengua (AEL) Calle Cuenca N4-77 y Chile (Plazoleta de la Merced) Quito on September 13 (11-13h, 14-16h).

More info here.

Radiation Day is the first of a series of works generated from fieldwork in the northern Chilean deserts, created with collaboration from Rodrigo Ríos Zunino.

More about our fieldwork and Radiation Day in a special feature on Earlid.

Funding for my participation in the XIV Festival Ecuatoriano de Música Contemporánea provided by the Arts Research Institute of the University of California, Santa Cruz.



Radiation Day featured on Earlid


The winter 2018 edition of Joan Schuman‘s ever-earful font of sound art Earlid is up online, featuring interview, thoughts and sounds related to my field work in Chile last summer.

My sojourn in the deserts and the altiplano regions of northern Chile resulted in the performance Radiation Day and as well as two free-form radio shows under the moniker XRRB on Radio Tsonami, both created with Rodrigo Ríos Zunino.
