(Many performances coming soon in 2024… )



My VOIDBOX is a blank canvas on which any object can be placed, resonated, and heard. In early 2021 I designed and crafted the VOIDBOX which is an acoustic-electric instrument that picks up the slightest of vibrations ('noise box'). My unique design allows me to affix countless elements or I can strike or resonate the VOIDBOX itself.

In shakuhachi there's a saying, ichi on Jobutsu or 'one sound Buddhahood/awakening'. Every time I engage with my VOIDBOX I'm taken on a deep dive into completely new and unexpected manifestations of the 'one sound'. With the creation of the VOIDBOX I've birthed something I'll never fully understand or completely explore...
