Four Points - 14/08/16



Four Points is a collection of compositions created from recordings made at each of Britain's extreme geographical points. Although these recordings are from similar locations, their distance from each other clearly presents distinct sonic individualities that are expressed through both social factors as well as geographical features, demonstrating an inherent diversity within our coastal soundscape that is often overlooked.

Exhibited at the Louise House in Forest Hill as part of V22's Summer Club 2016.


Goodnight Sweet Prince - 18/07/15



This electric organ took too much abuse from us over the years and eventually one day would not turn on any more. Rest in pieces.

Exhibited by Mint Works at the Bank Al-Maghrib in Marrakesh as part of the Marrakesh Biennale 6 parallel projects as well as at the Copeland Gallery, London.

Dōchūki: Recordings from a Soggy Sleeping Bag - 04/06/15



Dōchūki is a collection of field recordings made along a historic road in Japan known as the Old Tōkaidō Highway. There are 55 recordings total – one for each of the 53 post stations as well as the start and end point respectively.

The album makes frequent references to literature from throughout Japan’s history – primarily diaries and poetry – from before the Heian period to the late Meiji era (click on the individual tracks on Bandcamp for more contextual information). These referential recordings allow the listener to hear how the soundscape along this historic road has changed over the centuries, as well as compare their own emotional response to that of the writer. Furthermore, by informing my approach through Japanese literature, I hoped to adopt a more ‘native’ perspective of the Japanese soundscape which helped to avoid the ethical dilemma of representing a history through that which is deemed exotic by an outsider – a distinction that defines a culture primarily by its relative other-ness.

Exhibited at Hotel Elephant, London.

Beyond Seizures - 13/03/14



Originally on display as part of the London Brain Project's exhibition at London's Lumen URC Gallery.

With thanks to Samantha Chan and Cleo Chevalier-Riffard.

Using signals from EEG data that have been filtered and transposed to audible levels, these sonifications have been taken from 3 different time points during a nocturnal seizure. The sonified data is a representation of what the brain activity might sound like if we were able to hear it in real time.

After sonification, musicians Andrew Tuerslery, Hee Chang Yang, and LSE interpreted each time point. Listen to hear the chaotic nature of different seizures.
