Interview for SHAPE Platform Artist of the Week

Read my interview for the SHAPE Platform artist of the week, where I discuss new projects and my approach to ‘sensation’ and ‘perception’ in creating audiovisual performances.

”My works are also often highly gothic in the sense that there is something deeply disturbing lurking beneath…. I’ve had people laughing and screaming inside my installations, and also saying that it can make them want to run and hide and look under the bed in case the sense of scariness followed them there!”

“Ultimately my work is sonically driven, and I think about sound and light in terms of tactility… for me augmenting materiality leads to creative compositional methods.“

Work discussed in new book 'Experimental and Expanded Animation'

Really nice to see this excellent new book Experimental and Expanded Animation published by Palgrave Macmillan and edited by Vicky Smith and Nicky Hamlyn - a great resource on contemporary practice. I’m proud to receive a few mentions in the book, including some detailed discussion of my work in expanded cinema and sound over the years in the essay by Dirk de Bruyn.

Announcing my participation on the SHAPE 2019 artist roster!

Utterly thrilled to be part of the incredible SHAPE 2019 artist roster, which includes diverse sonic, audiovisual and installation artists from throughout Europe. This is an incredible project which involves artists crossing musical genres and audiovisual performance styles to form a consortium at the forefront of innovation.

SHAPE is platform run by a union of 16 European festivals, including Insomnia, Maintenant, Unsound, CTM and SONICA.

”The Creative Europe-supported SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art is announcing its 2019 list of artists. The artist selection for the platform’s fifth year traditionally places a number of audiovisual projects and sound artists alongside musical acts that range from post-grime and techno to free improvisation and acousmatic music.

Initially intended as a three-year project, SHAPE was prolonged to seven years in total, and will be running till 2021 thanks to the support of the “Creative Europe” programme of the European Union.”

Coming soon - field recording on LEVE

This October I was invited to create a field recording for the vinyl compilation LEVE. Situated in the north of rural Spain, the incredible recording studio and label is run by Rafa Martínez del Pozo and Esperanza Collodo. Each edition of LEVE features 8 artists from diverse visual and music arts practices.

About LEVE
“LEVE publishes sound editions on an annual basis. These are conceptually inscribed in the idea of environment and field recording, and compile works made by invited artists. Artists are invited to stay on location and to respond with their work to a ‘set of rules’ related to site-specificity, duration and time of recording. The editions are made on 45rpm 10inch vinyl and artwork is silk-screen printed by hand.”

LEVE 7 release date approx. Jan/Feb 2019.
