About me
Curious engineering graduate (MEng), looking to further my interests in sound and engineering. My studies have facilitated me to explore my interests in engineering and music in innovative ways. My Final Year Project Thesis entitled 'I Am An Instrument: Human-Machine Interaction Using A Gesture Controlled Generative Music Feedback System', is the design of a low-skill interactive generative audio feedback system that uses computer vision to map a user's gestures to music. With potential applications in public installations, clinical settings, and individual composition, this project provided insight into the challenges and opportunities that come with designing a when using multiple gestural control methods. Industrial work placement at Worldwide FM in 2020, working as interactive exhibition designer. Host of 'All Around The Sound' music show on Alto Radio.

  • Artificial Intelligence: the new artistic revolution?
    Artificial Intelligence: the new artistic revolution?https://artuk.org/discover/stories/artificial-intelligence-the-new-artistic-revolution “AI Art: The New Artistic Revolution?” explores the concept behind creativity, and thus whether AI can mimic this evolutionary approach, having significant impact on the artistic sphere. In writing this article, I contacted and interviewed influential robotic artists, such as Pindar van Arman and Robbie Barrat, understanding the algorithms used to model their philosophies behind what it means to be creative.
