Never Records is an artwork, that emphasizes community, listening as a sociopolitical act, transcendental science, visualization of sound, and what Alan Lomax described as “fomenting cultural ecstasy.” It is heavily influenced by Fluxus, Kaprow’s Happenings, Bourriaud, Harry Smith, and the collectivism of 80s and 90s DC punk scene. "Since 2010, I have traveled the world cutting vinyl records for free as a social gift. With each session, I teach participants the transcendental science of record cutting, along with a physical demonstration of the visualization of sound waves. From New York to Lisbon, Derry, London, Liverpool, Amman, New Orleans, Kansas City, and Brooklyn, I have been teaching the art of listening through the visualization of sound."
