‘The Butterflies In My Brain’ transforms an overhead projector into a site specific, performative sound device. All sounds originate live from within and around the machine - selection, manipulation and duration of sounds are made via interaction through live drawing. This repetitive, considered visual interaction stimulates sonic variations throughout the duration of the performance.
"Within my practice, intelligibility in performance is important - clarity of the process, gesture and resulting output is integral. I strive to create works with a degree of transparency, bringing the viewer/listeners along with me throughout the process. It is important that regardless of an individuals technical or intellectual knowledge they can still make the relationship between what they see and hear."
