I am a composer based in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. My music explores the identity formation and the delineation between self and other.
I am pursing two strands of work—Plates and False Self.
Plates are exploratory miniatures that investigate and devise systems. Plate compositions are research compositions. The systems developed whilst composing Plates feed into False Self compositions.
False Self compositions are more expansive than Plates, and seem to have a surreal—drifting quality. The term false self is lifted from the psychiatrist Ronald David Laing's writing. I use it to imply that there is another self working on the compositions with me. The first eleven works of this series were created in collaboration (and sometimes antagonisation) with a self-authored SuperCollider computer algorithm called False Self. These compositions explore the delineation between self and other, through my relationship with my digital shadow.
