CV

Finding myself in an engaging  environment, or where a particular phenomenon – some aspect of the environment – provokes interest, I record both sound and video, or perhaps sound alone.

Themes of time and place constitute a recurrent motif – for example, recordings made at the same place, same time or at the same place, but different time.  Phased recordings and playback, using the same structure but different geographical locations or time uncover issues of unity and estrangement, creating soundscapes of assonance and dissonance.

Journeys form another keynote: the juxtaposing of historical issues and present day realities, take the audience on a sonic travelogue via field recording or installation.  My improvised compositions discover means of extracting sound – directly via interaction with architectural structures and indirectly through the creative use of site-specific features.  Each location creates its individual travelogue and these audio/audio-visual journeys may be viewed as virtual reality, as virtual fantasy – or perhaps both, entirely dependent on individual interpretation(s).
