This exhibitions examines the interface between the visual and the aural through notation, documentation, performance and video/moving image. Each of these aspects are currently being explored from many different perspectives by contemporary composers, musicians, visual artists, and film/videographers.  Its basic starting point is the historical graphic score/‘new’ notational practices of the modernist avant-garde and how sound is captured and communicated.

My article, ‘Touching as Listening: Pulse Project’ is now published in the Journal of Sonic Studies!!!

‘Touching as Listening: Pulse Project’ has just been published in the 4th issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies. Access the article by clicking here.

The article presents my doctoral creative practice research project, Pulse Project (2011 -) and its exploration of the social interfaces between self and other, art and science, contemporary western music composition and traditional Chinese medicine. Pulse Project interrogates the axioms underpinning contemporary art, medicine and digital technology through exploration of their corollary ‘other’ – pre-modern Chinese medicine and music theory – in order to generate a new approach to embodiment and soundscape composition.
