His “Listener Activated Sound Environments” are installations designed to create an ultra-sensitive sonic experience for the listener-performer.  He was curator of the experimental concert series PSYCHELOUNGE and continues to pursue his goal of bridging the various camps of creative artists in the city and elsewhere.  He is the leader/composer of BlueBlackDream, VERTICALSON, NineNine, and partner with Theresa Rosas in the Ray-Rosas Project.  Paul Steven Ray teaches music technology and West African percussion in the NYC Public School High Schools where he has encountered some of the most original and unconditioned composing minds in NYC.


Sandy Pliego

My name is Sandy Pliego I am a Graphic Designer that likes to apply my flexible skillset and vision in both the commercial and artistic arenas. My efforts as both a designer and Art director have been integral to the realization of major projects in a variety of fields including campaigns for Newmark Knight Frank, Worth Magazine, and the cover art for Seneca Women’s podcast. I’m based in Brooklyn, New York, and a graduate of The Parsons School of Design – The New School. In the past 15 years, I have collaborated with composer Paul Steven Ray on his “Listening For The Bells” poetic soundscape, an example of my excursions in the more expressive visual arena where I have created work that navigates both minimalist geometry and dreamlike textures which rest in the mind like floating meditations. Future plans include further collaborations with sound art and music as well as installation art bridging the NYC and Mexico City communities.
