His work as an artist and researcher can be roughly summarised as focussing on environmental interaction and sonorous individuation. These theoretical concerns are often realized through technological means in installation and performance settings. His installation work seeks to test the role of sound as a catalyst of movement and as a material for the construction of intensive spaces. He performs as an improviser in a number of ensembles using handcrafted open circuits, unfinished code and found objects. He is a researcher at Culture Lab (Newcastle University, UK), a member of Polytechnic (an artists collective and ‘ground-up’ media space, Newcastle), and one of three drummers in the band Everybody is Going to Die. Lives in Newcastle.
