Invisible was made up of samples recorded whilst I was on an ERASMUS
exchange to Lyon, France. This was my first composition, made using ProTools:
all of the sounds were recorded by myself, mostly in Lyon. Different sounds
were grouped and layered on top of each other to create a strange narrative.

Uncertainty is made up of samples recorded whilst I was an in-patient
at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. I was there for just over
6 weeks and did a substantial amount of recording. With this piece I was
attempting to construct rhythmic and melodic elements by using the existing
beeps from the machines,and trying to find natural melodies within the
intonations of speech. I was also starting to become interested in creating
rules of composition by applying restrictions to my working methods which
involved applying certain random functions in the decision-making process.
Chance played its part.

ok was the result of a Millenium Award of £3561 I received
in September of 2002. I invited members of the local community around
Hampshire to 'nominate' sounds they hear in their environment. I then
recorded these sounds and photographed the sound source. The recorded
sounds were made up into a composition running alongside an instrumental
part - the notes of which were derived from mapping data values from the
images of the sound source to certain aspects of the musical sound e.g.
pitch, duration etc.
