I am a sound recordist who primarily utilises unmixed and unedited environmental sound recordings to create audio montages and compositions that explore the intersection of architecture, psychoacoustics, social dynamics and place. Through employing a technologically limited (recording focused) work methodology, I am driven to find inventive recording techniques that re-contextualise my surroundings as well as inspire fresh and idiosyncratic compositional approaches pertinent to the places, situations and events I engage with.
My works have been published through: 3LEAVES, AVANTWHATEVER , BCSC, Earwitness, Herbal, and MOOZAK.
