About me

 

Artist’s Statement I am an audiovisual composer, artist and sound designer based in Birmingham, UK. I am interested in creating immersive audiovisual experiences that reveal and amplify hidden connections between every-day technology and our environment. My current work surveys the physical locations of ‘The Cloud’; capturing the unique acoustic footprint of the internet. It aims to highlight the fact that whilst our smartphones sit silently on our dresser tables as we sleep, somewhere in the world a physical hive of noise, cables and chaos maintains our ‘digital selves’, with real analogue consequences to the surrounding environment. For soundscape artist R. Murray Shafer, “if ecology is the study of the relationship between living organisms and their environment, acoustic ecology is the study of sounds in relationship to life and society.” My research studies the acoustic ecology of the data driven society by investigating ways in which sound and space influence both our individual and collective experiences. In 2014 I won the Deutsche Bank Creative Prize in Music for my work investigating the acoustic ecology of Data Centres and the impact of the cloud computing revolution. To find out more about this ongoing project please visit The People’s Cloud. Professional Work I am available as a sound recordist, composer, producer and engineer for broadcast and media projects. I have worked for a variety of clients on commercial assignments including Factory Fifteen, Johnson and Johnson (Sudafed), Santander, McLaren Group, Blackberry, Factory Fifteen, The Science Museum London, The V&A, The National Museum of Computing and more. I previously played in the electronic band Nedry as engineer, producer, composer and performer for the group. We released two full-length albums with Monotreme Records which received global critical acclaim. I have also produced a number of remixes for other artists under this moniker. The band has toured regularly, having played across the UK, Europe, Japan and the US including major festivals such as Sonar (ES), Roskilde (DK), Latitude (UK), Airwaves (IS) and SXSW (US).
