Sound features a lot in my projects and as its own entity, I find sound a powerful tool to evoke emotions and memory, with sound making I use field recordings and often useing tools such as hammers and found objects to create the sounds, metals, stones, glass have been used in the past. With performance I produce live soundscapes using improvisation.
