“Middleman”

Quick piece I wrote on the satisfaction of a physical art-making process, particularly during pandemic lockdown.

So I’ve been asking myself: how do I balance the polish of seated, steady work (which may often take place in front of a computer) with the energy of a more physical, spontaneous process? When is it right to eliminate the digital middleman completely? And how do I pull work most directly from my body-mind?

“Princeton Atelier at National Sawdust: Humanizing Electronic Sound”

Abbie… concluded the evening, live processing her taps, executed from sea green shoes.  The precedence of percussion in contemporary music is made clear in her performance. She is the instrument and composer as she taps.  She is very funny.  [She] also has an uncanny sense of rhythm, which both delights and jars as she “beats” her work.

“Better Know a College Radio Station: Princeton University’s WPRB”
