Tipping Points at BEAF 2019

My new sound installation Tipping Points recently appeared in the Museum of Ecoacoustic Phenomena event as part of the Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe 2019.

Tipping Points is a sound installation that emulates the stable and chaotic behaviours of environmental ecosystems.  It features sounds from field recordings made in Dorset, which are manipulated by the computer to mirror the ways in which ecosystem population densities vary, increasing and decreasing in both predictable and erratic ways.

A collection of creative people including Adrian Newton, Marcus Leadley, David Rogers and Laura Reid also performed or presented work over the weekend, which took place at the Bournemouth Natural Science Society on the 4th and 5th May.

Another Museum of Ecoacoustic Phenomena event will take place in Bridport, Dorest in July 2019. More detailas to follow.

Music at BEAST FEaST 2019

It was an honour to have Traces of Play included in the recent BEAST FEaST Festival at University of Birmingham. The concert programme featured many amazing composers, so it was a real privilege to appear alongside them.

EMAS at 40

On 25–26 January I attended and presented music at the Electroacoustic Music Association of Great Britain 40th Anniversary, taking place at the University of Greenwich. As well as presenting Traces of Play, it was amazing to hear music across the weekend’s various concerts and to sit in the paper sessions.

And it was great to meet up with so many friends and to be part of this amazing community of composers. Thanks to Adam Stanovic and James Andean of the British Electroacoustic Network and Andrew Hill of University of Greenwich for all their efforts in prganising such a great weekend.
