I am a sound artist and Deep Listening® certified tutor, with a PhD in Music Technology and Innovation, and 13 years of postdoctoral creative research experience listening to and improvising our sonic migrations: through voice, language, body movement, underground transport systems, dreams and networking technologies.
I have received prestigious research awards such as The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship (2007-2009), and the Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship (2017-2019), and Honorary artistic mentions such as IAWM New Genre Prize for "Sounding Underground", and Pamela Z innovation award at NIME Conference 2019, for "INTIMAL".
Currently I engage in:
the development of "embodied" Interfaces for Relational Listening (INTIMAL);
the facilitation and teaching of Deep Listening® and SENTIENT workshops;
I trust the healing that improvising and sounding with others between distant locations can bring to feelings of geographical and cultural loss, as we interconnect sensing place and feeling presence.
