I'm a musician and performer based in Bristol, UK. My work encompasses ideas relating to performance art, improvisation, physicality, sound art and noise music.
Through the performance practice Rummaging, I use found objects to explore ideas relating to viscerality in performance, and the relationship of humans to the things we surround ourselves with.
I am active as a drummer and percussionist, predominantly in the field of free improvisation, and I occasionally record and release electronic music that makes use of found sounds, field recordings and custom-made software. I recently contributed percussion and rummaging to Ed Dowie's album The Obvious I.
I have performed with a diverse range of musicians. I was an early member of the Dirty Electronics Ensemble, and had a longstanding duo with Henry Collins, with whom I developed the performance practice Rummaging.
Outside of my own creative projects I have worked as a programmer and engineer, designing and building software and hardware solutions for art installations and performers. Notable projects include working with arts collective greyworld and as creative director for Lou Barnell's MELTA.
I also produce visual art.
I am currently undertaking a PhD at De Monfort University, Leicester, provisionally titled "Rummaging: In search of a visceral noise music".
