I have been working with environmental composition for the past couple of years, combining ideas related to acoustic ecology and sound conservation, applying them in new ways.
My passion for the sound of the environment started while studying for my Master’s at Goldsmith’s, University of London. While being exposed to various sound art agendas, I came across the work of R. Murray Schafer, Barry Truax, Hildegard Westerkamp, and the World Soundscape Project project. My interest peaked and intertwined with my obsession for forest therapy and natural soundwalks. While living in cities, I would find myself drawn to nature’s call, collecting a lot of field recordings of natural environments. Some of these recordings can be found on my artist page with Artlist, as organised sound packs.
My work encompasses electronic synthesis ideas, combined with space-related installations, as well as spatialized music. Through various manipulation techniques, I try and relate relationships of us and the environment in a highly interactive, theraputic way. To me, the auditory experience as present in acoustic ecology is a plethora for in-depth analysis and experimentation with sound in all it’s breadth, beyond strictly acoustic phenomena, sociological, psychological, aesthetical and environmental effects, connecting the acoustic communications model of Truax, with my own ideas of sound production.
