I strongly believe that innovation requires expertise in both construction and deconstruction. At my core, I am a hacker and maker, constantly breaking down, creating and building musical instruments. I have coded and made many installations and instruments, working with platforms including Pure Data, Raspberry Pi, Arduino as well as designing and making circuits. Projects I designed and made have been on stage at the Royal Albert Hall, Ice Music Festival and the Royal Festival Hall and have been exhibited at Tate Modern, Spitalfields Festival and London galleries to name a few. Working as part of a team that included Tom Fox, Eska and Luis Zayas, in 2016 we won the Giant Steps and Soundcloud IOT prize at Berlin’s Music TechFest Hack-a-thon with a wood-based mechanical sonic sculpture that reflected on the connections between forest, wind and the movement of air.
