Biography

I am a highly experienced musician who works in the field of experimental music practice. I have an advanced and expanding knowledge of many types of music making, and my own work encompasses many aspects of these. I have played and recorded as an improviser, an electroacoustic composer, and composed classical scores, but primarily I work in the fields of electronic music and beat-based culture. I am currently finishing a PhD which has led me into film work, literature, sound art, and digital media. The breadth of my own practice has highlighted the importance, for me at least, of an openness to all forms of creativity, in particular how they inform one another. I play with various bands and ensembles in many different guises, and have a tendency to seek out new ways of music making, however odd or baffling they may seem on the surface. The notion of any particular type of musicking as being superior to another is wrong, and this is something that I emphasise constantly in teaching. I also teach as a music lecturer at Newcastle University, specialising in composition, compositional theory, popular music, 20th century modernism, free/experimental jazz, electroacoustic music, electronic music, and cultural theory.
