Artist Statement:

    These lines from John Ashberry’s Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror describe the behavior of the sound objects I worked with: “Like a wave breaking upon a rock, giving up its shape in a gesture which expresses that shape”. Events in WaveBreak are nearly devoid of any steady-state; each event evolves continuously toward the next, the outcome remaining uncertain until the event has already passed. This concentration upon the unfolding of individual sounds results in a kind of monody, although at some points more than one soundstream is presented.
