I also develop interactive sound art and compose electronic music for live performance.
I have taught workshops, summer camps, private lessons, and year-long courses in both guitar and electronic music.
I am also a co-founder of EMDM Academy, a STEM to STEAM outreach in the greater Baton Rouge area. EMDM Academy offers audio/music oriented STEM to STEAM summer camps, including a summer camp targeted at junior high age girls, Girls Rock!. We have also taught high school and junior high courses on web-audio development and audio engineering at various schools.
I am develop mobile apps for the LSU Sea Grant College. Our apps aim to provide modern, mobile services for commercial fishermen and emergency disaster managers. We are incorporating GIS datasets srom NOAA, LWDF, and LSU.
I have presented work at various conferences, including ICMC, SEAMUS, and NIME. My composition "Prelude and Nightingales" was performed at the 2016 New York City Electronic Music Festival, and I recently published a paper in the Journal of Music Technology in Education.
I have recently presented installations at art venues in Baton Rouge. 'Dots' and 'The Ritual' feature interactive video tracking. They were developed to be as accessible as possible: no special sensors other than a typical webcam is required.
As part of my job at Southern University, I am working on creating a concentration for music majors in music technology. We intend to emphasize design and development skills from a musician's perspective rather than only business and recording production.
These are iOS apps I've been independently developing for a couple years now. They are digital musical instruments that challenge typical ideas about music making. I am planning on public releases later this year. Some of my other apps are available on the iOS Appstore now.
This is my open source toolkit for iOS. It is currently in the early stages of development, but several individual components are on my Github. The toolkit is for streamlining mobile DMI prototyping and active development for iOS. It takes some inspiration from NexusUI (web API currently in development at LSU), but aims to provide higher-level, more specific abstractions ubiquitous to iOS.
