Video Images:

Attempts to examine the space between the image and the moving image.
Assailing the certainty of motion and the stillness of singularity, these
pieces address the bridge between the discrete and the continuous and question
the reigning conception of the film as representative of motion,
though it inherently asks for interpolation of a series of discrete moments.

Conversation Pieces:

Where does trust arise? In the overheard, there is a problematic of truth
that is often dismissed by the academic or the casual viewer. But
what validates the truth of our experience of the everyday world?
A study in the creation of and belief in myth.

- A Ventriloquist's Unbirthday Present · frag11
From the Fragment Blog:
"Being the first guy ever, who played a complete noise show in
a driving stretch hummer, and also one of today's most innovative
noise artists out of the US, i'm eminently happy to present the
latest works of the Chicago based unit known as Instinct Control,
consisting of Ryan T. Dunn and his circuit bent Sony Stereo 530
Solid State reel to reel tape recorder. 40 minutes of minimal
feedback/bending weirdness in an ultra nifty acetate cassette
sleeve, all designed by Dunn himself!"

- This Is Where I Draw The Inflection Line · lsc011

- On Hands & Knees (Under the Bed) · lsc009
On Hands & Knees is a foray into the relationship between
the machine and the animal. A young robot finds a monster
under his bed and his program is fundamentally altered.
Voice, open circuit tape players, instrumentalized microphone feedback, and trumpet.
Recorded during the fall and released in November 2007.

- Big Sur · lsc007
Big Sur was recorded at a camp ground in Big Sur over the
course of an evening touching the circuitry of a
take·a·long children's portable tape player, and alternately
playing a classical guitar. I was there to see Laurie Anderson
play an intimate show, and I recorded an album intimately with electronics.
Recorded in 2005, released in 2006.
