I am a musician, composer, and sound artist exploring the synesthetic relationships between auditory and optical landscapes. I am also interested in evoking stochastic behaviors in compositional structures by translating visual or gestural input into sound. One example of how I am doing this is with the Gestural Music Sequencer (GMS). The GMS is an application that I developed in Processing.org that analyzes video input and converts it into a sequence of musical information in real-time.
Originally from the United Kingdom, I am currently based in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I am an instructor in interactive media at the Art Institutes Minnesota. My work involves composition, experimental software development, music and sound art. I founded the sound design resource, AudioCookbook.org, where you will find more documentation for my projects and research.
On this site I am selecting a few examples of work that I have produced recently. This will include audio works found under sound, custom built applications and digital art under images, and music releases under discography.
