Biography Short Version (Long Version)

I'm a sound artist currently based in Sheffield UK where I'm studying for a PhD. My primary interest is in the creation of slowly evolving soundscapes. This takes in aspects of traditional electro-acoustic composition and an interest in getting my hands dirty with electronics and computer programming. I often seek to compose in a way where the outcome is not necessarily foreseen (which is one definition of experimental music). This approach has seen me derive pieces from weather patterns and accounting statements. I've presented my works through traditional methods (releases on CD and concerts) as well as in an installation context in galleries.
