Expanded Snare Drum

Solo performances using a snare drum without sticks and avoiding usual playing techniques: using motors, air pipes, objects, tape players, feeding back speakers to make drones and textures.

Playing the snare drum in improvised settings using these same sound sources: continuous drones, scraping sounds, crackle and hiss.

Solo studio recordings and collaborations with other improvisers.
