News and Recent Projects

Where are the Updates? They're on Vimeo

This section isn't getting much attention these days... but current sound design and mix projects are getting posted to Vimeo.

As time permits, I'll collect creative projects into a more comprehensive portfolio site. But for now this old one, and the links on the home page will have to suffice!

Currently developing projects in the following areas:




Selected Recent Work

Listen Toward the Ground
For ISEA 2012 Machine Wilderness, Albuquerque New Mexico
A site-specific composed soundscape work, designed for listening to while walking. Using headphones and a voice-guided tour format, it superimposes the soundscape of oilfield infrastructure onto the soundscape of downtown albuquerque.

Video POV Walkthrough:

Phantom Power: Cycles
Crowd-amplified public soundscape work, presented by Me-di-ate's Project Soundwave in Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francisco.
Visitors carrying a hundred or more boom-boxes and other portable amplifiers circumambulated Yerba Buena Gardens, playing back a set of multichannel soundfiles composed for a particular walking pattern. The composition brought us through the age of oil into the age of bicycles, in sound.

Space for Slow Time: Synchronous Forest
Installation work for CCA Playspace Gallery.
Single Channel Video Projection, Four Channel Sound, Spiral Scrim.
The piece takes the primary form of a large spiral - perhaps reminiscent of a tree trunk - composed of one part diaphanous fabric, one part projected video. Projected onto this spiral are slow and gently crossfading images, drifting from a rotating tree-trunk bark-scape to a daydream of gold-green flowering branches wafting in breeze. A partly physical partly electronic space for contemplation.

Food Safety Enhancement
A sound poem about the Federal Food Safety Enhancement Act

Food Safety Enhancement is sound piece, a soundpoem of sorts, by sound artist Jeremiah Moore, commissioned by dancer/choreographer Rowena Richie. It was created as a kind of personalized response to a piece of legislation which was being discussed a lot in the spring of 2009 - the Federal Food Safety Enhancement Act - and in particular a part of it which some were calling "Scorched Earth" - which promoted the idea of creating "Sterile Buffer Zones" around farmer's fields. But really the piece is about disconnects: About technocracy trying to regulate the interstice where commerce and industry meet growing things. It ended up taking this fragmentary, internal narrative sort of form, hinting at internal imagery and confusion at the information in the news.



Bay Area Sound Ecology (BASE)
Co-chair of an organization promoting social experiences around listening. We've host an ongoing series of occasional listening salons, soundwalks, and other events.

Member of founding group of a new arts organization fostering listening and perception, centered around a unique acoustic space in Rangely Colorado called The Tank. Raised $46K on Kickstarter. Now at the beginning of a long process of forging the future of this place. With Bruce Odland and a number of other artists.




12/1/2011 Interactive and Animation Sound Design

I was asked by Organic to create sounds for, a large interactive website targetting potential Meth users, answering questions and providing a lot of information about the effects and dangers of Meth. You may have seen other parts of the integrated campaign. For instance the TV spots by Darren Aronofsky got a lot of attention. (I didn't work on those however.)

My work spanned two areas: Sound Design for Interactive Modules (little explanatory flash-based "web games") and Animated Films. Links to each are below.

I'm sorry for the huge pile of links, I know it's overwhelming... but each one is quite different, and I'm proud of the work on all of them. Check out the animation material for sure.



The Downward Spiral (Pinball)
"Will Meth Make Me Lose Control?"

"Psychotic Behavior" (Meth-Induced Psychosis)

"Chasing the High" (Ring the Bell)

"An Unstable Recipe (Meth Lab)"
Drag items into beaker.

"Arrhythmia" (The Heart in Overdrive)


"How it Works" (Dopamine)
What does a meth hit do in your brain?

"Crap Shoot / Dice Roll"
"How Dangerous is Meth?"

An Uncertain Future (Tarot Deck)
"Does Meth Have Long-Term Effects?"

"The Perfect Storm" (Meth Mouth)
Sounds for tooth grinding, poor diet.



Kara's Story (Blacked Out)

Oriah's Story (Violence)

Ashley's Story (Crank Bugs)

Hailey's Story (Tooth Crumbled)

Bernadette's Story (Best Friend)



Superbowl Shuffle Redux

The 2010 Superbowl ad I worked on was the Superbowl Shuffle Redux, for Boost Mobile.

The commercial was shot on greenscreen all over the country, wherever the players are now. I worked on the Bay Area shoot - assembling a temporary recording studio to record Mike Singletary's rap and other voice material. I provided rough mixes for lipsync during the shoot, and edited vocal comps and beat-sync'ed raw takes for the composer to include in the final track. I also supplied consultation on timecode and workflow for the music video and sync-sound components of the shoot.

You can hear all of Singletary's stuff in the full version of the video on the website

Here is our temporary autonomous timecoded recording studio, set up in a TV producers' office in Oakland:



New Reel Channel on VIMEO

I've recently posted an up-to-date collection of videos to a new Vimeo Channel. This will be kept up-to-date with new material. Thanks for taking a look and a listen!



Hula Hooping is now an Olympic Sport

I'm pleased to present this latest sound design project, for an interactive campaign for the International Olympic Committee. I was contracted to produce sounds for the website as well as for several videos and video interstitials and packaging. Fun! The site has gotten great press, including a prominent article in the New York Times.

agency: C&W United
production company: Mekanism



Putting a Face on the Web for Nike

face image

I did this job for Nike, an interactive send-a-friend-a-customized-animated-video campaign, created by Mekanism. It promotes the Nike+ Human Race event. The fun challenge was getting the voice to sound smooth across all these variable points in which the sender's name, recipient's name, or lines about the recipient's running ability or online activities are inserted. Delivering millions of assets (OK, about 1000) and keeping it all straight across dozens of deliveries, approval rounds, and timing tweaks. Also designed a cool sound for the webpage turning into a face, and back. Try it out - it's safe to use, won't turn your email address into a sales lead or anything. Client: Nike+

Excerpt from "Balancing Acts: A Jewish Theater in the Soviet Union" from Citizen Film on Vimeo.



Angel Island Immigration Station - Soundscapes for Chinese American History

Felicia Lowe and I created soundscape interpretations for three barracks environments at the Angel Island Immigration Station Museum. We had numerous recording sessions all over San Francisco, chasing down music cues and many voices and dialects to be represented in the space. We also took several trips to the island to perform foley live on-site. It was an honor to be involved in this historic project.

The sound is currently not installed due to california budget shortfall - please contact me if you'd like to hear once it's up and running.

Need for Speed Undercover - panoramic sound for EA

San Francisco's Mekanism created this immersive 3-D panoramic websie promoting EA's driving game Need For Speed. I was tapped to furnish sound: three immersive designed-sound environments, each comprised of two loops which shift in perspective as the user rotates through the panorama. And a set of glass shard interface sounds.

Click on the "map" in the upper left of the site to select between the three environments. Headphones highly recommended!

Donny Wants Lee to lick his hand

Hot off the presses, this piece for sobe lifewater was mixed on Monday... just under 1.5 million views in two days... not too shabby! With Ian Kovalik, Andre Ricciardi, Bill Wier, Chris Weldon of Mekanism



Pocket-Dialed by Toyota Matrix:

Image of character from campaign wearing headphones

Mekanism and Saatchi LA masterminded a massive interactive prank experience for Toyota Matrix, spanning a world of digital and mobile media. As part of the project, I engineered a series of pocket-dialed phone calls from the characters in the "game." We recorded clean audio in a booth, and I developed a scheme for processing it all to sound as if it were pocket-dialed from a cell phone. About 4000 edited and processed audio assets were delivered to telephony and web progammers in two formats, with detailed asset lists developed in conjunction with post supervisor Mike Cavanaugh.



Palm Centro dot Com: Cool Noises for a New Phone Site

Jeremiah Moore Sound completed sound design for the Palm Centro microsite, with the interactive department of Y&R San Francisco. There is an accompanying banner-ad campaign, with ambient sound.

7/1/07 wins DA&D Yellow Pencil and 2 Cannes Cyber Lions

Mekanism / McCann Erickson's Windows Vista buzz campaign (for which I did the sound design) won a DA&D Yellow Pencil for Best Website 2007 - Writing.

The site also won a Cannes Cyber Lion - twice - for Best Interactive Campaigns and Best Microsites. Bravo Mekanism!

Sprint Interactive Video Site: Sound Design

Ever experienced connectile dysfunction? Sprint commisssioned Mekanism to build this site to create buzz over their EVDO broadband internet-over-cellular service.

The centerpiece is a viral "send to a friend" video in which the target's name and profession are inserted seamlessly into the playback.

Making the audio experience as seamless as possible was a fun challenge, involving mix continuity through hundreds of small clips.



PG&E: Let's Green This City Viral Videos Sound Design

A set of twelve videos designed and mixed in record time for PG&E's earth-day related green campaign for San Francisco. A cool mix of live action and some very cool animation.



Windows Mobile: Work Wherever Microsite Sound Design

Here's a really funny site for Microsoft's Windows Mobile. The tag line: Test the limits of what one man can work through. Basically, you get to do all kinds of crazy things to this guy, like shoot a hamburger at him out of a tennisball cannon. Meanwhile, he's working away on excel spreadsheets and word docs on his (surprise surprise) Windows Mobile gadget. The guy's name is Frank. But I'm not sure it says that anywhere in the site. [side note: if only they'd let me fix up the production sound... it's not so hot, full of extraneous bass rumble etc, but the sound effects sure are!] This is rated G so show the kiddies!



Saving the Family Farm: Hidden Kitchens on NPR

I worked with the Kitchen Sisters to edit and mix their latest sonic tapestry: a Hidden Kitchens piece centered around the Farm Aid organization and concert. Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, Neil Young and a host of family farmers and food activists converge. Aired on Morning Edition on Thanksgiving day.



Microsoft Windows Vista: with Demetri Martin

Sound design for 1) a series of Webisodes and 2) a website replete with gadzooks of ironic humorousness. And occasional passed-off mention of the "Product" being marketed, Windows Vista. What you call an "awareness campaign" folks.

Also there are some TV spots and a special on Comedy Central which I mixed the "pods" for, which is where MS bought all the ad time during the show and put funny vignettes in it. Really tongue in cheek funny!

With Mekanism and McCann.

Here's a rundown on the supreme effectiveness of the campaign!



10/2/06 / Microsoft Zune microsite sound design

What do you do when you're big, and you're launching a product that competes with a total phenomenon at the height of it's phenomenonality? You make a weird website right? That's what Microsoft's doing for the highly anticipated launch of the Zune player, Redmond's answer to the iPod.

I'm designing the sound for the site Loads of fun sounds, including a moog-driven UFO.

(update - the site has won an ID award)



Electronic Musician Magazine: Whoa - Back Up

An editor from Electronic Musician magazine interviewed me for this article about backup strategies.

1/6/06 Character and Style for Current TV Launch

Television as a two-way street: the dream is becoming real - Grab your DV camera! Every two weeks since October 2005, Current TV has launched a new episode of their Awaiting Input campaign. Highly stylized animaged seques make for interesting sound design challenges. And a cool robot, VC2 aka ViC, represents the power of everyperson to contribute programming to Current. An opportinity to pull out the old synths: a Moog Sonic 6 and Roland Jupiter 6, and a dash of the modern with NI Kontakt. Sound design and mix by jm.

Another FWA Site-of-the-Day: Juvenile Destructo-Humor at

A site I recently finished sound design and mixing for,, was Favorite Website Awards' site of the day for Nov 30, 2005. It's a cool flash interface, moving seamlessly between widescreen video and interactive stills, and a good demonstration of excellent quality video and sound on the web. Imagery is beautiful, shot on film and 24p HD with film lenses. Plus it's dang funny. A product of Tommy Means and the inimitiable mekanism.




King Kong Production Diaries DVD: Over 80 audio menus and transitions

Peter Jackson and company have been posting production diaries and post-production diaries to their web fansite over the course of making King Kong. The production diaries are appearing in stores as a special, limited edition DVD as the movie opens (December 15, 2005). Company Wide Shut did the extensive and elegant DVD menu interface design and production, enlisting me to design and mix the audio for over 80 menus and transitions in stereo and 5.1 surround. Unfortunately, the discs' data budget precluded the use of the surround mixes. Thanks to Thom Loftus for editing and Ron MacLeod for sharing the alpha of his new surround technology.



11/23/05 is FWA Site-of-the-Day is Favorite Website Awards' site of the day for Nov 23, 2005. An interactive prequel to the game, sound is used to make the creepy experience an immersive one. Directed and produced by Conor McCann.

Here's sombody else's blurb on it: "The site, a unique combination of linear and non-linear story telling, is in an interactive flash environment designed to get viewers involved and familiar with the game and its characters by the time Condemned: Criminal Origins launches."



11/23/05 wins Cannes Gold

Makanism's hilarious episodic campaign for SEGA won the Cannes Cyber Lion Grand Prix this year. The full title helps describes the scenario aptly: "The true adventures of Chad, the boy who was so into Super Monkeyball Deluxe that he decided to live in a ball."

The pieces were a great opportunity for sound design, adding a level of bouncy, stretchy tactile realism to the ball. My personal favorite moment is the little foley sounds in the leadup to the swimming pool sequence.
