I am a composer, curator, engraver, performer, and researcher currently based in Manchester, England.
Emerging out of interests in the physicality and ephemerality of music performance, my current composition and performance practices explore ways of working with and understanding documentation of musical work. This practice has led me to activating and directing musical performance and attention through bespoke and collaboratively produced scores often taking form as video, audio, embodied choreographies, and/or oral remembrances, as well as more traditional physical and digital notations.
I currently conduct research into this practice at The University of Huddersfield where I am pursuing a PhD in music composition under the supervision of Aaron Cassidy and Liza Lim. The title of my thesis is: EFFACED REFLECTED BEING: Documents and/of/as Musicking Bodies.
Together with Louis d’Heudieres and David Pocknee, I curate WEISSLICH, a concert series and platform for work happening at and around the intersection of experimental music and performance art practices.
In addition to my writings on this website, I have recently started a blog called Ears’ Ears, a site dedicated to presenting readings of documented musical work that approach music-making bodies as scores.
I also provide typesetting services for musicians and academics.
Contact me; I like talking.
