As a composer and sound artist, I have been involved in various audio genres since the late 1980s, performing at institutions in the UK (Bristol's Arnolfini, London's Science Museum, Tate Modern, The Roundhouse, ICA and Glasgow's CCA), festivals worldwide (Mutek, Synch, Transmediale) and had installation work in numerous UK galleries (London, Swansea, Stroud and Essex). After numerous electronica releases in my 'si-cut.db' guise, in the past few years I have focused on acoustic improvisation and installations, using field recordings, classical instruments, vocals and children's toys. My collaborators include Blanca Regina, poet Tamar Yoseloff, Angharad Davies, Lina Lapelyte, Steve Beresford, sculptor Rob Olins, as well as - in the past - pop group Saint Etienne, Jem Finer (The Pogues), Momus, Rod Thomas (Bright Light Bright Light), Scanner, Stephan Mathieu and DJ Andrew Weatherall. I am also co-curator with Iris Garrelfs since 1996, of Sprawl audio events in London.
