Eartudes are a series of personal etudes. They can be performed alone or by the audience in a concert setting. The pieces can only be heard by the performer. Sounds are produced by the hands on the body. Sounds are filtered ambient sounds made with the hands on the ears, or very soft sounds made with the hands on the body that are transmitted to the ears through the body rather than the air. Eartude 1 is for solo ear; Eartude 2 is for stereo ears; Eartude 3 is for the whole head. Notation is animated.

Eartude 3 is a work in progress that will be premiered at the PLAY festival at Phoenix, AZ March 23-24, 2012.
