Rebecca Novak works within the practices of free improvisation, visual art and writing to explore the performative relationships between environment and self. As an improviser, she explores sound with an evolving constellation of objects and instruments including cornet, piano, autoharp, glass vases, melodica, short wave radio, styrofoam and ping pong balls. She has also written text-based scores for interdisciplinary works that combine sculpture, movement, sound, live writing, and acting. She has performed and presented her work at Museo Rufino Tamayo (Mexico City), Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), ghost (Santa Fe, NM), DiverseWorks Houston, Daughter of Lady Friends Experimental Music Salon, New Media Art & Sound Summit (Austin, TX), Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Project Row Houses, MECA Houston, and The Menil Collection Byzantine Fresco Chapel. She has recorded as part of the trio Garden Medium with Sandy Ewen and Carol Sandin Cooley, and in the duo Pilot with cassette tape/electronic musician Steve Jansen.
