My background is in music – I’ve worked in various areas, but in the late 90s settled on electroacoustic music; either purely electronic, or with live instruments. Since then, I’ve diversified: electronic music and sound still underpin everything that I do, but collaboration has become a key feature of my work, particularly in the field of dance, both as a composer and in a broader capacity working in particular with interactive systems and telepresence. My work has become more varied stylistically, from abstract sonic art to more ‘approachable’ material. I’ve also moved into working with video, in a series of fixed-media pieces and installation works. I’ve also become increasingly involved in live performance.
I also work as a lecturer/academic, at Bath Spa University – I’ve been teaching quite long-term there in Creative Music Technology, and run the MMus in Creative Sound and Media Technology . I also supervise a number of PhD students.
