I have been making sound portraits since 1985, when I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge with a cassette recorder to make a field recording that became the basis for the work 𝘊𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨. This was followed by three more solo works: 𝘓𝘪𝘦𝘶𝘹, 𝘛𝘩𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘗𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘵𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘔𝘢𝘥𝘳𝘪𝘥; 𝘕𝘦𝘸 𝘠𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘊𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘵, and 𝘔𝘢𝘥𝘳𝘪𝘥 𝘊𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘵, all of which combined field recordings from a chosen place with live instrumental improvisations. Since then, most of my works in this genre have been collaborations with local improvisers, including 𝘈𝘳𝘢𝘨ó𝘯 𝘱𝘶𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘤𝘦𝘳𝘰, Í𝘯𝘴𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘴, and 𝘓𝘪𝘴𝘣𝘰𝘯-10 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘗𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘵𝘴.
Most have been released as CDs or CD-books, except for 𝘓𝘢𝘤𝘶𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦, my sound portraits of the lake district of Michoacán inhabited mainly by the indigenous Purepecha. This work was performed live in Morelia and twice more in Mexico City but never released as a recording.
