Reimagined Field Recording, 2019

My contribution to the Yellowstone Project with Cities and Memory, a collaborative sound map project based in Oxford, UK. This track was chosen to be on the highlights album.

To reimagine a field recording of the Clark's Nutcracker I used various granular synthesis and sampling techniques composed a long ambient track for the sound map.

A series of 6 chapters that explores the future of humanity through the embodiment of the future in evolving creatures. As set sound recordist and sound designer/composer for this project I composed imaginative soundscapes and sound worlds for each vignette, creating a dreamlike speculation of the future through the eyes of hybrid creatures.

Direction: Alexis Gambis (France/USA).

Video Installation, Sound Designer, 2017

Terrifying and lonely deep-dive into the experience of an anxiety attack. In this sound design I used psychoacoustics to induce (light) feelings of anxiety in listeners, raising their heartbeats and quickening their breath with along with the actress. This was my first complete sound design for a short film.

Direction: Anneliese Lee-Reid (USA)

#florence

Experimental Video Installation, Sound Designer, 2016

Sound design for Harshini J. Karunaratne's multi-channel video installation exhibited at the La Pietra Dialogues in Florence, Italy. #florence explores the value of image making on social media through the tourist gaze. The sound design is slow and alarming, to accompany slowly changing, glitch-filled video. My first installation sound design. Read more at:

The Wanderer

Sound Poem, composer/performer, 2016

Collaboration with writer Kuvonn Richardson, this piece is composed of found sounds from my travels in Europe and a live reading of a segment from the poem, exploring the role of a traveller and the idea of feeling in between, a traveller, not belonging anywhere in particular.​ Inspired by Kaija Saairaho's 'Stilleben', this was my first entry into composing with field recordings.
