Thrown for a Loop: A Carnival of Consciousness

I have been collaborating with my brother Mike on a new performance piece, which will be performed for the first time in September at Alex Miller’s Strange Loop conference in St. Louis. The piece is based on the work of Douglas Hofstadter, and is a romp through some of the concepts presented in his classic […]

am turing: automatic elegy

Our June 22nd performance and installation was a success, and audience reactions were very gratifying.

installing bottled water

Byron Au Yong’s Kidnapping Water: Bottled Operas is a shapeshifter of a piece. First, it was guerilla art, performed for audiences of one or two or a dozen people from within bodies of water in King County. Next, it was formally packaged, blocked, and turned into a ritual at Bumbershoot. In its current phase, it […]

Kidnapping Bottled Water

I’m singing in the premiere of Byron Au Yong’s epic performance piece “Kidnapping Water: Bottled Operas” and tomorrow is the first day of our site-specific performances.
