Possible catalogue photos, I really can’t decide what to go for. I’m attempting to visualise the sound wave from my Dream Frequencies project, as a rehash of that is most likely to be my degree show, but it’s proving difficult.
My main area of practice is sound. I mostly work with electric instruments, specifically the guitar, exploring the tonal possibilities and new sounds I can create by manipulating the instrument through effects pedals or software or even dismantling and rebuilding it. In performances I incorporate extended techniques and prepared guitar to build soundscapes influenced as much by the philosophies and theories of minimalist composers as by experimental guitarists and luthiers. My recent works have begun to move further into installation and environments created through the use of sound generated from various sources; pre-recorded samples, manipulated instruments, programming and open source software, exploring the effect the sounds have on my audience over an extended time period.
