My work relates to sound, architecture, live performance and participatory art. It explores embodiment, presence, listening, the psychology of sound and the relationship between people, sound and space.


I perform solo, and in collaboration​​​​​​​​​​s with David Toop, Steve Beresford, Phil Minton & Feral Singers, Andie Brown, Yoni Silver, Steve Noble, Alex Ward, Charles Hayward, Anat Ben David, Blanca Regina and Lina Lapelyte.

Since 2007 I have been directing/conducting a series of spatial compositions and participatory, large group performances; exploring the inter-relations between people and place. These pieces are site specific,, experimental democratic and collaborative, inviting the public; musicians and non-musicians to take part. This work offers artistic engagement, play, and creative exchange, as a means to learning and bringing together, presenting a shared space and collective ownership: ​L'esprit d'escalier ​– for voices in a staircase, Sound Out for a large group of voices in a public space. Toy Orchestra – for children and adults, Long Drone for a large ensemble of various instruments, Gals with Guitars – for female guitar players,  Feel the Noise for a large ensemble of electric guitars & micro amps.


​​​​​​​​​I am a co-founder of arts radio, Resonance 104.4 FM​​​​​​​​​​,  and have​​ been presenting and producing many programmes, including​​​​​​​​​​ the weekly show, ​Diggers,​​​​​​​​​​ with Edwin “Savage Pencil” Pouncey, ​​Venus Rising, ​​​​​​​​​​​In Search of Inspiration, and  Stereo Ciliaa weekly sound-diary, documenting my journeys in Babylondon; exploring its multi-lingual sonic world and urban sounds .

I released five solo albums and other collaborations with various labels: The Tapeworm, American Tapes, My Dance the Skull, Fractal Meat Cuts,  Visible Near Midnight Recordings, Ecstatic Yod , Ash International, A Silent Place Records,  Chocolate Monk, Emanem Records, Paradigm Records, Wild Silence.


Most recent solo releases  Delicious Fish  & The Garden of Earthly Delights

I perform in the UK & internationally. Past performances include; The V&A, Science Museum, ICA, The Whitechapel Gallery, Arnolfini Gallery, Tate Modern & Tate Britain, MACBA,  and Colour Out of Space, Borealis, Supernormal ,Supersonic and TUSK festivals.


I participatee in Sound and Music’s New voices' artist programme (Sept 2019 -  March 2021) and have just published a collection of texts and colour scores and propositions, presented as a deck of cards.
