I am a musician, sound artist and musical instrument designer. My work in musical instrument design focuses on the development of new musical instruments; predominantly acoustic and in the bass/sub-bass register. One of the central aims of my work creating new musical instruments is to free myself and others from the baggage often associated with existing instruments!
I have an almost unhealthy fascination with sound, often being distracted by a squeaky shoe or the sound of the ventilation system when I should be concentrating on something else. I can’t help but twist the uses of objects, to find new ways of creating sound and interfaces with instruments and technology. A hacker at heart.
I also perform live electronic music, and drone, doom metal influenced music on tuba.
