Leonard's recent sound/video installation "True Bread" explores aspects of exile, censorship, global capitalism, and transformation of urban sound. Holland Cotter described the piece in the The New York Times as "a haunting, rhythmic, chant like score, secular spiritual music for a New World." Leonard is the Artistic Director of Berklee College of Music's Interdisciplinary Arts Institute. He is currently on the Fulbright Specialist Roster and is a Research Affiliate at MIT's program in Art, Culture and Technology.
