The Proud Turkey
Fresh from the oven... Interactive musical artwork! Instrumental_Art_02 was created for SEN community members that want to engage with musical performance. The multi sensory illustrations contain touch sensitive technology that encourages playful interaction through a logical, creative and fun medium. Unlike other sensory equipment, Instrumental_Art can be fully customised to individual clients, and looks ace on the wall 🙌🏼
An Evolving Soundscape
“By training your ears and mind to actively listen to sounds, instead of tuning them out, you will enjoy an increased level of audio understanding, deeper levels of creativity, and connectivity with your environment… Deep listening explores the difference between hearing and listening. Though we receive sound waves through the ears, these waves are transduced to electrical impulses by the mechanisms of the ear and transmitted to the brain where listening takes place. The ear does not listen – the brain listens.” Pauline Oliveros

Fabra i Coats
I was privileged to have been included in this collaboration of sound artists working in Barcelona in 2017. Using custom sound design and a 16 loud speaker system, we created an evolving immersive soundscape within a decommissioned textiles factory in the city. The combined outcome was far more emotive than any of us predicted, and led to the installation being commissioned for several months during an art event at the venue.
Echoes In History
'Echoes in History' was created as an interactive installation for the 'I Used to See' Sound Art Exhibition. The installation invited guests to record and control sound objects through a multi-channel speaker system within the historic space of the Sant Augusti Convent, El Born, Barcelona. Participants recorded and modulated samples using a custom designed iPad application and microphone. The installation was later commissioned to be moved to the medieval ruins of Sant Boi to be included in the Arte Nou Festival.
An exploration into using artificial intelligence for musical composition, the program follows a simple set of algorithms allowing it to generate a different random arrangement each time it is started. Currently 15 pre-recorded audio files are contained within the piece; it is possible that up to 8 may be playing at any one time. Further software developments are being prototyped for a commercial retail outlet chain looking to utilise the system in their stores.
