FutureMusic "The Track" asked me to do a video interview breaking down how I created "Which Memories Will Make It?" (from The Sampler As A Time Machine LP). It was such a pleasure to be featured on this series - I really love talking about production techniques. This was filmed before the COVID-19 lockdown but was only just released.

It was fantastic to participate in a 1-week residency at Snape Maltings to develop a new surround audio work Vengeful Ghost with composer Dom Bouffard. The public showing was on 16th of November - thanks to all who attended and participated in the Q&A. Look out for future performaces of Vengeful Ghost. Vengeful Ghost is an immersive performance exploring the menacing ephemerality of invisible forces. Mining the possibilities of electric guitars, percussion, vocalisations and digital reprocessing in a multichannel space, this visceral work-in-progress blurs the lines between performance, installation and sound sculpture, honouring the electric guitar’s unique outlaw status and displacing it in a search for new shapes.
She Makes Sounds featured me in their Under The Bonnet series. After an in-depth interview in my studio they created a fantastic breakdown of how I prepared my live set-up for my recent show at Islington Assembly Hall. Diagram by Emma Hall. Read it here.

February + May 2019
I was honoured to be invited by The Barbican's Future Band to be Guest Artist this year, for their series of workshops under the theme Year of the Instrument. Over several weekends in February and May I led workshops with the participants (ages 8-14) in brainstorming, prototyping and performing new capacitive touch digital instruments. See the instruments designed by the participants here.
