His creative practice explores the musical affordances of complex open-forms and non-linear processes and their visualization in multi-dimensional, generative graphic scores while his research into creative applications of technology has been regularly presented at many of the world's leading forums for new music research including the International Computer Music Conference, the Digital Audio FX Conference, SMC, TENOR, and NIME and published in journals such as Contemporary Music Review, Organised Sound, Leonardo Music Journal, Tempo, and Digital Creativity.
Recent projects have included a work for the ELISION ensemble with a 3D holographic score displayed on Microsoft's HoloLens, one of the most powerful mixed reality headsets currently available. Current projects include a work for piano and HoloLens that features a 3D score generated from the application of natural language processing techniques to live Twitter feeds, and a monograph exploring spatial ontologies in musical form. In 2019, he was awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship to undertake research into development and design strategies for augmented reality music applications. He holds a PhD in composition from SUNY Buffalo where he studied as a Presidential Fellow and is currently the Technology Manager at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, The University of Sydney where he is also an Honorary Associate in Composition.
