David L Byrne

My work revolves around creating natural systems and listening to them for advice. I treat the frequencies as one treats a garden, deciding what seeds to plant, giving the room to grow, pruning where necessary, and ultimately letting the fruit take shape itself.
I use feedback to create sound, not only because it is accessible, but because it is how life was originally generated on this earth. I call it generative music for that reason.
My mission is to discover the resonant frequencies in any object, emotion, person, or situation, and let it ring.
I do this through feedback manipulation, self-iterative recording, untethered performances, and experimental story telling.
