Areas of Academic Interest
  • Sound Art Curating; Sound Art; Experimental Music, John Cage; Curating as a research methodology
Current Research
  • As a sound artist, scholar, and curator who has had the opportunity to organize exhibitions in both public and private institutions, my practice spans the experimental sonic realm. Investigating 'Listening’ as a curatorial method, my doctoral dissertation focuses on John Cage's three exhibitions/compositions for museum, situating the composer as a curator.
