My practise revolves around the physical experience of sound, exploring the environment around us and how we exist within it. I draw upon notions of ecology and psychogeography to illuminate processes and systems that go unnoticed by the human experience, with a particular interest in examining how land around us can hold memory. I achieve this is in a few ways, the main being soundscape design, combining of field recordings with found/imagined sounds, to create new audio landscapes. This approach places an emphasis on connecting history to local communities and uses sound as a means to highlight systems of the natural world.
Recently, I have decided to embrace a more analogue side to my practise by developing a series of soundwalks. Sound walking is a group activity, where the participants are taken on a guided walk, with the aim of drawing attention to our bodily connection to the environment around us. It's a wonderful way to engage with a community and learn from the outside world.
