A very brief excerpt from Sea Shanty. Over. (2020), an 18 minute binaural sound with video work, currently running on the CCRMA WAVE (Wall for AudioVisual Expression) until March 21th 2020, at CCRMA, Stanford University, California.
An improvisation on materials consisting of reverberated found sounds is performed and mixed in real time. The reverberations are created by impulse response measurements taken from the sounds of sea waves crashing against the shoreline rocks beside Hook Head Lighthouse in Co. Wexford, Ireland. These reverberations create a kind of water-based virtual acoustic soundscape. The video for the work is created from an analogous multistage filtering process.
Thanks to Megan Jurek for the ambisonic phase flipping plugin.

Experimentation of a different kind – an album/Blu-ray and research project on which I was a researcher, assistant engineer, and a few other things! Ultimately, this work allowed for the development of a dynamic virtual acoustic system… original pieces utilizing this and other virtual acoustic experiments coming soon… in the meantime:
Capella Romana: Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia
If you have an opportunity/facilities to hear the surround and Dolby Atmos mixes of this album, then get at it! So much better than simple old stereo!

A Binaural Album… put your headphones on before hitting play:
Through a glass darkly, half drunk, and mostly empty
An album featuring two recordings of extended live performances – mostly Electric Guitar and SuperCollider.
