about

12seconds.tv was a website and community where you could post videos with a 12-second limit. During the 50/90 Challenge of 2008 I posted a series of 12-second songs which I then hacked together into a 3-minute album called 12x12 on YouTube (youtu.be/-T8TpgG60Do). I perform the whole album live quite a lot.
