SELECTED AUDIO WORKS

Secret Harmony, a podcast that started as a “show within a show” on Radio Ravioli. It features creative, bite-sized sound sketches and audio collages. Stream wherever you stream podcasts.

Ceremonies of a Commuter, Radio Art Zone, 22 hour radio piece commissioned by Radio Art Zone, a 100-day radio art station for Esch2022 that broadcasts in the south of Luxembourg by Radio ARA on 87.8 FM and online. Ceremonies of a Commuterplays on the idea of a soundwalk. It consists of recordings taken on the way to work, work being freeform radio station WFMU, and the way being a walk of roughly 30 minutes. The broadcast meditates on 3 main themes: (1) what it means to record, (2) walking as an activity, and (3) finding creativity in the mundane realities of daily life.
