A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 28 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. [On hiatus.] (Visit homepage.)

I've been thinking about that lately. A lot of creative people that don't just do their own stuff probably think about that. Van Gogh basically painted full-time. His brother gave him money...invested in his work. (Not that any of you don't know that.)
