Proving that two wrongs can be right, musically, for over 25 years.

Winner of 6 Dora Mavor Moore awards, Freddie Stone Award winner, Juno nominee, nominations for the Paul McGibbon Award and the Louis Applebaum Award


A specialist in obscure musics and odd sounds combined with a generalist in sound design and performance.


From music on custom made instruments, electronics or full on score work, all with a de-colonial bent, browse through the samples or shoot me a question. I love to produce slightly unexpected themes and sounds to elevate our works.
Here's an excerpt from Double Pendulum Performance's Synaptic Rodeo, a performance piece about losing your predictive mind, developed after a residency at the LiveLAB at McMaster University. Performed live with EMG, EKG, EEG, motion capture all to OSC and live video, with this excerpt featuring myself on live guitar to laser lissajous projection. Movement by Julia Aplin, text/dialogue Anna Chatterton and media design by Jim Ruxton.
