ELECTRONIC MUSIC

As a composer of electronic music I have performed various work on the international circuit of electroacoustic festivals, at events such as the International Computer Music Conference in New York City, Athens and others. I have a background DJing and have links with underground techno, with my music having been released on Anti Narcose Records and Hardcore Jewellery, and sold through Toolbox Records in Paris.

AUDIO-VISUAL COMPOSITIONS

I create audio-visual work including visual music films, VJ performances and virtual reality experiences related to my work on altered states. This work is created using analogue and digital techniques, including hand-painted animations on 8mm film, and computer graphics animations. My audio-visual work has been performed in the UK at VJ London, Seeing Sound, Fort Process and others, and internationally at events such as Sweet Thunder Festival in San Francisco.

VISUAL ART

I have a background as a visual artist and continue to paint and create mixed media work incorporating digital techniques, which explores ideas related to my work on altered states and visual music. My work has involved the use of digitally cut stencils, airbrush, and generative code. My paintings have been exhibited as part of the Carbon Meets Silicon series of exhibitions in Wales, and on artwork for my music releases.
