Sound and Music Computing Conference in Helsinki

I was excited to return to greater Helsinki to present my work at the Sound and Music Computing conference at Aalto University. I also got to record with some more of the terrific improvisers in the area! I performed Shankcraft with Sergio Castrillón, presented Raveshift (installation), and a paper on Ferin Martino.
