‘What if the human body is capable of storing music, like vinyl? What if our bodies became the acoustic container of our memory? If we used our bodies as instruments, would different people have a different sound quality? Will big people sound nicer than smaller ones? What do the feelings sound like?’


My interests revolve around sound, physicality, communication and emotion through exploration of technology, hands-on interaction, people-centred research and inter-disciplinary collaborative working models.


Touch the Sound includes a bespoke device for an autistic child, dance performance, artistic films and sound design.
