The Rare Earth hypothesis states that complex life is the product of an intricate series of coincidental cosmic conditions. The unlikelihood for these precise circumstances to align suggests that intelligent life is rare elsewhere in the universe—if it exists at all. But perhaps complex life is more varied than we know to look for. It might even be all around us, undetected or simply unnoticed.
An audiovisual performance piece inspired by the emergence of organized systems in chaotic environments, Rare Earth for Desert Plant is a ritual plea for interstellar contact. Using augmented trumpet, modular synthesizers, interactive visuals, and ceremonial objects, a beacon for intelligent communication is formed and activated.
A telematic performance with Perry Cook between CalArts and Stanford CCRMA, as part of the CalArts Digital Arts Expo 2017.
Repeal and Replace is a multimedia performance piece that explores multiple perspectives on the idea of control: our struggle to obtain it, our desire to be freed from it, the futility of chasing it, and our fear of losing it. The performers (Perry Cook and Sarah Reid) will play trumpet and vocals, each augmented with extended means of control (Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface on the trumpet and Chironic Articulatory Singing Controller on Perry). A generative score made in Processing provides an initial visual prompt for the performers. As they play, data is captured in real time and sent back to the visual score, or routed to various audio control parameters, creating a semi-improvised audiovisual feedback loop. At times the relationship between performer and technology is clear, while at others it becomes messy and obfuscated, a constant tug-of-war over who (or what) is in control.

The Los Angeles Percussion Quartet play Sarah Belle Reid's new composition Flux, for amplified objects as part of the CSUF New Music Festival.
Flux is an electroacoustic piece for percussion quartet that explores how infrathin (a concept coined by Marcel Duchamp to describe the smallest perceptible separation between two things) manifests in speech and communication. Both verbal and non-verbal communication play such a fundamental role in our daily lives. Yet often, we find ourselves in situations where our communication methods are imperfect, words become stifling (or are stifled), or something prevents us from truthfully and adequately expressing our thoughts.
This work utilizes unconventional instruments built from everyday sundry items such as plastic combs, pen and paper, and wooden rulers to examine these infrathin separations: things that are neither here nor there, but—by their very existence—are an amalgam of multiple objects, ideas, or moments in time.
the clamor and surge of voiceless thoughts
a body that moves before its mind
words as vibrations—filtered
