I think of the artistic experimental method I use in my work with sound as a form of feedback based on intuition. By that I mean: When I poke the world hoping for something to happen, if it does happen, I learn my hypothesis may be correct. I feel more connected. If it doesn’t, then I adjust my poke until it does or until I find out the world doesn’t work anything like I am imagining and my hypothesis is incorrect. I then feel disconnected.
Obviously, this process requires defining myself—as inspired by R. Buckminster Fuller—the guinea pig of my own experiment, that sets in motion a form of attentive play more closely related to art than to rigorous science.
