Technologist

  • 2016-2018, MA in Creative Practice (awarded with Distinction) from Falmouth University. I developed my interest in the use of music in site specific locations, which in turn led me to develop an interest in "locative music". This involved making a series of interlinking compositions which could be accessed via a mobile app (audioroam) through GPS technology. Located at Pendennis Point in Falmouth, you can either listen in the location or in armchair mode. See my Showreel page.
