    Vision Statement

    My research interests centre around the use of noise as a resource in music composition and sound art, especially with reference to contemporary practitioners such as Yasunao Tone, Ryoji Ikeda and Carsten Nicolai. Through this research and practice, I am developing a theoretical and conceptual framework to provide a basis for the creative application of noise in contemporary practice.
