I am passionate about taking new music to new audiences, especially large-scale sound art projects for public spaces - city squares, parks, festivals and museums. I have work in the Science Museum London which is seen by around half a million people annually, and have recently shown at Bluedot, Kendal Calling and Cheltenham Jazz festivals, each with attendance around 10,000 visitors.

Examples are interactive installations which respond to (or are played by) the audience, weather-driven work, and improvised performance. I'm also interested in generative systems, self organisation and feedback which have been of interest to me since my master's study in artificial life in the mid 2000's.

I'm also interested in multisensory effects, specifically the way sound can activate objects in the imagination of the audience, and much of my recent work (such as Aeolus' Cabinet and Colony) explores this territory.

I have been awarded a PhD from the Sonic Art Research Unit at Oxford Brookes University under Professor Ray Lee (DoS) and Professor Paul Whitty, and I currently hold the position of Senior Lecturer in Music Technology at Leicester De Montfort University.
