I am a multi-instrumentalist, composer and author who fuses sound and science in my stories. I love to explore the surreal and strange experiences found at the edge of consciousness in my work. Living with music triggered epilepsy both informs and inspires my creative practice, often adding an extra twist to my free improvisations. I am agender and have no strong pronoun preference, they or she both work for me.
In case you’re wondering if that’s a tenor recorder with a circuit board in the picture, yes indeed, you’re absolutely right! Having got up close and personal with the sharp end of a soldering iron, I built my own custom instrument- the robo-recorder- to facilitate extra electronic madness.
Spiral Dial was born after I was awarded the Help Musicians UK Fusion Fund. We decided to bring music triggered epilepsy to life through my audiovisual installation INNERVATE. These days we produce a monthly subscription serial story with live improvised music. Join us for a regular dose of musical, medical scifi here….if you dare!
