Dale builds automated sonic contraptions and modifies other instruments, especially the vibraphone and trumpet. He often uses common materials to create unexpected & immersive sonic environments. Some installations seek to reframe technology through the intersection of electro/acoustic and new/old mediums, such as his use of data projectors & spinning styrofoam causing quasi-holograms. Some installations illuminate acoustic phenomena and are effected by solar & wind activity. Many works also welcome a tactile interactivity especially popular with children. Dale has recently been playing around with footpumps, garden irrigation and balloons.
