Selina Trepp: I Work With What I Have is an immersive, three-channel animated experimental score for improvised music.

While studying for his BS in International Studies at the University of Utah, he began to make and exhibit work about language and place. He continued his studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he received an MFA in the Department of Sound. His work has shown internationally at the Hong Kong Arts Centre, International Symposium of Electronic Arts, Chicago International Film Festival, Litmus Community Space, Chicago Cultural Center, the Studebaker Theater, Roots & Culture and Experimental Sound Studio.
