I am a Community Creative working with digital technology based in South Cumbria.
A composer and improvisor working with mobile and online technology, pushing the boundaries of digital technology and off the peg electronics in improvised music for many years. I became the first Cumbrian composer in the British Music Collection in 2014. I work with my environment: from the use of field recordings to experiments of live remote performances in odd places using phone technology.
My practice has grown to incorporate visuals, which like my sound work is based in improvisation and my environment. I have been involved in a number of site-specific multi-media performances from Barcelona to a tour of British seaside towns.
I am an experienced workshop leader and specialise in creative technology, working with the community, schools and arts organisations to get the best creative use out of new technology.
This has seen augmented reality exhibitions in primary schools, internet radio broadcasts from 18th century water mills, comics about Vikings, animations, film making, photography and online blogging.
I also lead workshops in group improvisation and graphic scoring.
