phase space
a/v performance

Situated between alchemical ritual and lab experiment, this audio/visual performance explores human perception in relation to the time-scale of nature, creating an embodied experience of the space where liquid, crystal, electricity, and flesh coincide.

speaker/piezo
sound performance

Piezo discs are put into direct contact with the various components of speaker diaphragms, exploring the materiality and physics of the loudspeaker-mic feedback loop. The slightest movement alters the sound completely, requiring control and patience to generate a range of sounds from bouncy percussive clicks to massive bass drones.  Immediate, minimal, and direct, Sexton seeks to draw us through immediacy into the beyond, stripping processes down to reveal the endless levels of complexity within.

other dimensions
site specific sound performance series

Inspired by theoretical physics, I aim to create an intensely embodied and expansive experience of the spatial dimensions of a room through sound. Utilizing hand held oscillators I move throughout the space, searching for resonance, activating zones of phase and interference.  With contact mics I amplify plinths or other objects in the room, creating feedback and modulating it by moving them around.  With simple radios, electromagnetic fields and distorted broadcasts are received and modified by touch, transforming exposed pipes into large-scale antennas, my body part of the circuit.
