I am an experimental composer and multidisciplinary artist working with sound, sculpture, electronics, moving image and installation. I am interested in the relationship between sound and environment and the architectural qualities of sound. My practice is underpinned by landscape, mythology, ritual and synaesthetic crossover, particularly the dynamic between colour and musical notation. When creating sound works, I often use non-traditional composition methods, field recordings as material and collect physical fragments of the landscape to create my own hand-built instruments and sculptural sound devices. I also create vocal, multi-instrumental and electronic compositions inspired by reading the landscape as a score. I am interested in acts of translation and transformation, using sound as a way to describe visual, physical and emotional experience, interpreting landscape in musical terms and exploring how musical composition can be used as a means of mapping space and the cultural, ecological and socio-political significance of space.
