Hiroshima (2004), created with long time friend and collaborator Duane Ingalls, is a brief reflection on both the historical and potential future result of the technology of armed conflict. Perhaps the single most important event(s) of the Twentieth century, the dropping of the atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki seems too often relegated by the West, possibly since we, specifically we Americans, are the sole perpetrators of nuclear attack in the history of mankind.

Originally composed for the Festival de Arte Sonores in Barcelona, Spain, Hiroshima is a textual deconstruction and indexical audio reconstruction of a small section of John Hersey's incredible book Hiroshima.
