Country/Area: London, UK

Maker Bio:

I am a composer, improvising guitarist, and instrument designer. I compose music for human and non-human performers focusing on the disquieting tension that exists between human and machine-made music.
Working with human performers, robotics, custom-built digital/analog hardware to explore the uncanny valley in sound. Blurring the lines between the perception of organic and artificial, composition and improvisation, and intention and error.

Project Name: FEEDBACK MOBILE – Speaker Ball & Microphone Satelites

Project Introduction:

7 microphone/preamp satelites orbit a ball of speakers(at different distances) generating different overtones as they pass each set of speakers.

Each microphone’s volume and low pass filter is controlled individually via MIDI.


Project Name: RoboUke Prototype Improvisations

Project Introduction:

A Prototype for a new series of semi-autonomous acoustic instruments designed to be played simultaneously by humans and machines.

Whilst reflecting our adaptation to our increasingly automated physical environment, I intend for this project to also prise open new approaches to composition and improvisation by re-contextualising familiar instruments.

Special Thanks

to Maker Music Festival for inviting this amazing project to exhibit on Maker Faire Shenzhen 2021.
