Working with others is an important aspect of the current process of my sonic art practice. These projects often bring together the skills of many different people, as well as the improvisations of transitory visitors. For a short space of time we become coLaborators, allowing the unexpected to happen...
Engaging with site-specific experimentation has been a continuing interest for me over many years, and has involved research with various media including sound frequencies, sonic field/film projects and earth as sited colour. My recent acoustic projects have included live sonic processes made visual through the use of the sound emission analyzer, Overtone Analyzer (Sygyt Software). These installations involve projections of interactive sound visualizations that respond to a variety of microphones, picking up participative co-production of sonic experimentation.
Collectively initiating, organising and curating exhibitions with a number of different people has become part of my working process as an artist. Making work into the void has never been as interesting to me as working for, and on, particular exhibitions or exchanges. Encouraging longer set up times that allow for on-site experimentation and collaboration in a coLaboratory, is of continuing interest.
Since 1995, my art practice has been based at APT Studios + Gallery, 6 Creekside, Deptford, London SE8. Recent studies have included an MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths, University of London (2009-11). Since 2006, I have been an associate lecturer at University of the Arts London, working at Wimbledon and Camberwell Colleges of Art.
