My research interests include multichannel acousmatic composition, performance practice of electroacoustic music, live acousmatic performance, phonography, site-specific installations and cross disciplinary collaboration.
As a composer I specialise in electroacoustic music and my work explores the inherent sonic nature and identity of environmental sound, amplifying sonic characteristics that are not normally audible to the naked ear. My music explores abstract and recognisable sound worlds and all the spaces in between.
Space is central to my research. I am currently developing working methods for composing large-scale multichannel works and exploring compositional methods for using ambisonic audio.
A further area of research is environmental sound. As an active field recordist, I work increasingly with surround sound recording methods. Further research in this area is the development of a series of augmented soundwalks and an accompanying mobile app.
As a performer I work with BEAST (Birmingham Electroacoustic Sound Theatre) and am developing my live performance practice working collaboratively to develop live acousmatic and improvisatory performances.
I also collaborate regularly with dance and theatre companies as a composer and sound designer.
