He has released work on DFA, Smalltown Supersound, Troubleman Unlimited, Rong, Eskimo, Lo, Root Strata, White Columns, and Deitch Projects labels. He has remixed Lawrence Wiener, Lindstrom, and Shocking Pinks, and has been remixed by Hot Chip, Munk, Optimo, and Soft Pink Truth. In late 2008, he composed and performed a live score with violinist Nicky Mao for Doug Aitken’s film Migration, a recording of which is forthcoming. More recently, a number of his pieces were used in the soundtrack to the documentary film Objectified (Gary Hurstwit, 2009). His forthcoming album The Soft Wave will be released by Smalltown Supersound in May 2010 and will be accompanied by remixes by Swedish group Studio (Information) and the American artist Keegan McHargue (Metro Pictures). His collaboration with British composer Anthony Moore (Slapp Happy) will be released on the RVNG imprint in early 2010. He is also a member of the groups Q&A (DFA), The ALPS (Type/Mexican Summer), and co-founded the group Tussle, which he departed in 2007.
