Kevin Corcoran: shanzhai
Using the Sub Jam video channel ( as an archive of past Miji concerts, identify a performer you wish to copy for a certain instrument technique or a certain gesture or body movement.
Copy this technique or movement repeatedly until it feels natural for you, no longer belonging only to the performer you first encountered it through but to your own language.

Kevin Corcoran: Boundary Objects
In sociology, a boundary objectis a thing used in different ways by different communities.
Apply this definition to a selection of mundane household items turning them into musical objects acoustic or amplified. Improvise for any duration.
If you have means to amplify with microphones, consider another definition of the boundary object as that creating a physical boundary which interferes with or shapes the ambient sound in your environment. Make field recordings with microphones inserted inside or attached to household objects changing them into listening devices.
Kevin Corcoran works with percussion and field recording and sometimes electronics.
Based in San Francisco, California, he improvises, arranges sounds and collaborates across disciplines and borders.
