"There are two basic principles of musical structure I rely on. The first is expressed by the force of attraction, (gravity, love, concentration, creation), and the second lies in the idea of repetition, (materialization, duration). My mindfulness of this constitutes the only score. I find I must wait before the beginning of each performance until I am surprised by the first sound I make and the fact that it is made. Then, I feel ready to proceed."

Environmental participation sculpture installation created for the show, Sound Sculpture, at the Vancouver Art Gallery, in which sound environments in a specially designed room with damped acoustics and visual isolation encourage learning to navigate through these sound spaces using only aural cues; pairs of participants may also have their brain signals control these sound environments; subtle light tracings embedded in the surrounding walls and optical superimposing and exchanging of the participants' faces on each other's bodies can also be triggered by alpha waves from their brains that are synchronized in phase while they face each other in meditative postures on opposite sides of a two–way mirror system.
