Put The Needle On The Record
A free public recording studio at Seattle Center for a 50-year time capsule in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the World's Fair. Recordings were made on an antique record lathe using second-hand laserdiscs as blank 'vinyl'.
I envisioned and carried out the project with Grant Robinson and Kris Dorr as lathe technician. In the end we recorded over 365 sessions of music, stories, poems and conversations that are now stored at Seattle Center's Armory until 2062.

An Evening of Chance Operations
A free concert featuring live audio-visual performances and interactive installations. The unifying theme of the night was that each performer base one element in chance. Whether sampling from unheard mix tapes or live processing audience guitar riffs.
I performed in, booked and promoted the event. I produced a suite of interactive visuals and audience members were invited to participate by controlling these during the event.
