This June 10 + 11 a very unique event curated by Mark Fell will take place at The Samuel Worth Nonconformist Chapel in Sheffield UK. The event is called Lush Spectra and in the words of Fell, the event will “foreground the beauty of the sounds, and the use of hypnotic patterns and harmonic forms”, with the aim of creating “a welcoming environment where everyone can experience this unprecedented collection of unusual musical forms”. i am thrilled to be presenting a solo performance in the context of this very special event alongside incredible artists such as Limpe Fuchs, Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, Nandini Muthuswamy, Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, Oren Ambarchi, Ryoko Akama, Jana Winderen and more. Full details here.

On March 22 I will be performing solo in Brisbane AU at the Institute of Modern Art as part of the MONO series curated by Lawrence English/Room40.

Today in Moscow, my site-piece Piling Pelion Upon Ossa opens at GES-2 as part of the weeklong event Geometry of Now. This piece is a process-based site work utilizing repurposed bricks from the demolition of the interior of the main GES-2 space (previously an immense power station). The sculptural pile is surrounded by a 4-channel sound piece created by recording the piling/building process through various points and sources in the space. The final work manifests as two detailed and intrinsically connected representations of the same action.
This weekend i will travel to Moscow to create a site-specific sound sculpture titled Piling Pelion Upon Ossa at the former GES-2 power station. This piece will be presented as part of a very exciting festival/program titled Geometry of Now. The weeklong event is curated by UK artist/curator Mark Fell and presented by the V-A-C Foundation. The festival takes place from Feb 20 – 27 and will feature an array of installations, lectures and performances by a truly exciting group of artists. I’m honoured to be a part of this special event with this new piece and also as part of a panel discussion on Curating Contemporary Sound Art and Music. I’m very excited to get to work next week on what could prove to be one of my most laborious pieces.
