I am a composer and sound artist. My work explores a balance between real world sounds, spoken word, classical music and electronics. I am a keen sound collector and spend a lot of time outside; exploring, listening and gathering soundscapes. Birdsong, shuffling feet and muted conversations are as important in my compositions as any instrument and the results are highly immersive. I am passionate about deep and active listening, sound memories, lost sounds, drawing sound and sonic meditations.
I am also a dedicated sound and music facilitator specialising in composition and music technology for primary children, special educational needs and disadvantaged young people.
I am currently exploring the way movement and sound sketching can inspire my composition practice and help me manage my repetitive strain injury.
