Can Public

Can is an abstract work that interrogates a limited range of sonic material.

Can takes two metal cans – a trash can and soda can – and crushes and shreds them sonically. It is a work of disrupted and transformed loops and rhythms shaped by strong spatial trajectories, and where classic compositional techniques of repetition and variation of material, within a strong formal design are at its core.
