SPEAKING & APPEARANCES
Past presentations have included the Sideshow Fringe Festival, the Arts and Business Council of Greater Nashville, Austin Peay University and the Southeastern College Art Conference.
Topics have centered on the strategies for the fine & performing arts in a post-institutional culture, arts administration, and trends in sound art/new media. I also really like hosting panel discussions.
Previous client engagements have included Arts at the Airport, TedX Knoxville, and the 2011 Killer Tribes conference. In these roles, my best contribution has been as “arts technologist” – helping stakeholders understand their options and guiding the decision-making towards a successful and satisfying conclusion.
I accept a limited number of engagements PER year.

“I HAVE WORKED WITH KYLE TO CONCEIVE OF A SOUND PROJECT IN AN ODD PLACE – A RENTAL CAR FACILITY AT NASHVILLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. HE’S BEEN A BREEZE TO WORK WITH AND HAS IMPRESSED ME WITH HIS DEEP TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE ALONGSIDE GREAT CREATIVITY AND FLEXIBILITY. HE CAN PRESENT HIS IDEAS WELL AND HE IS VERY RESOURCEFUL AND SKILLED AT MAKING AN IDEA WORK. FOR OUR PURPOSE, WE KNEW WHAT WE WANTED TO DO – PRESENT SOUND AND VIDEO ART PROJECTS IN A NON-TRADITIONAL SETTING, BUT WE REALLY DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THAT. WE FOUND TRADITIONAL TECH COMPANIES WANTED TO SELL US STOCK SYSTEMS THAT ARE USED IN TRADE SHOWS AND CORPORATE SETTINGS. WE REALLY NEEDED AN ARTIST’S SENSIBILITY TO MAKE OUR PROJECT WORK AND WE FOUND THAT WITH KYLE.”
I partner with storytellers, filmmakers and artists to craft a signature sound for their project that creates physical responses in their audience and elevates their storytelling.
I do the hustle work to clear songs and produce re-recordings. I’ve also placed master recordings. If you have “no” money, I can coach you (and you can do the emailing and phone calling).. if you want me to do the emailing and phone calling, we’ll have to come to an agreement. In general, you can place nearly any song for $500… if you are willing to pay royalties on the backend.
