all modes on

all modes on is a performance lasting 30-50 minutes and basically consists of me and a lot of old keyboards and tape. over the course of the performance, in time, I tape down each and every key with tape. each time it's different and each time there is a similar outcome, a developing visual aesthetic and a slow, hypnotic crescendo of sound. in large venues I make sure I have a projector and camera screening live from above the performance area to get all those nice blacks, whites and new lines in. in small venues I have done it with amplification and with a close crowd

I accompanied performances with a zine touching on the connection between medieval modal music, my passion for the mathmatics of music, the familiar interface of the white and black keys, and this performance

this piece was first exhibited in 2007 and I performed it in galleries in 2008 also

additionally, I recorded an album of songs using exclusively the 15-20 outdated keyboards I used for this performance
