I use field recordings, circuit bending and synthesis to create carnivalesque experiences which explore the act of play. Using lo-fi technologies I transform a space or object, encouraging the audience to become a curious performer and embrace play through interactivity, improvisation and collaboration. My work materialises as playful interactive sculptures, transportive soundscapes and empowering educational projects.
As a sound artist working in Essex, England, I work across films, video games and interactive installations. I studied at Huddersfield University, earning a 1st Class Honors in Music Technology and Popular Music Studies. I have exhibited at venues including Firstsite, Nottingham Contemporaries and Turner Contemporary as well as producing work with Channel 4 and the BBC.
Additionally, I’m also Education Coordinator at Signals (a digital arts charity), Creative Director and co-founder of Teaboy Games, and co-founder of CLIP – a young peoples experimental music ensemble.
What I’m working on at the moment
- I’m one of Sound and Music’s New Voices, where I’m developing my Photon Smasher instrument and using it to devise new music and performances. Find out more here.
