She is one half of the sound art duo Beatrix*JAR, which for over eight years has spread the good word of DIY Music across the country with hands-on Circuit Bending Workshops, and live conceptual sound art performances. They hold a Bush Artist Fellowship from 2010, and are currently collaborating with the Teen Council at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston on an album creation project called “Let’s Make Some Sounds”.
