Zen & the Art of Noise Reduction
Research & Practice
A lecturer at dBs Music and Course Leader for BA(Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering and MA(Hons) Innovation in Sound, Plymouth Campus.
My specialism is Music Tech, especially vintage/analogue recroding gear; teaching (undergrad. and postgrad. levels) and practice (commercial businesses). I hold a Masters Degree in Computer Music, am an active participant in several research groups holding a full membership with the Audio Engineering Society.
Alongside more traditional musical projects, I like to experiment with techniques such as binaural soundscapes, alongside the construction of electronic and/or computer based audio devices.
I enjoy having access to a number of excellent audio systems across the Plymouth and Bristol HE campuses of dBs Music. This makes me proficient on a number of analogue, digital and hybrid systems, including SSL, Neve and API consoles, Pro Tools systems, Studer Tape Machines and a vast range of outboard gear.
