Inspired by a work of Vito Acconci's from 1971, Conversions (2005) explores basic sonic transformation using simplified, binary relationships. While any musical parameter could theoretically be "problematized" into a binaristic transformation, only the ambiguous element of timbre has been addressed in performance. Ideally, a range of elements (duration, frequency, amplitude, etc.) could be run through the stark process of Conversions (either diachronically or synchronically). Beyond the basic unifying goal of continuous tranformation, each performance is intended to be a unique sonic environment for performer and audience alike.
