I work as a visual artist. I have been exhibiting mostly video installation for well over a decade, being an Artist is my passion. I have always had a great love of experimental music and sound. In the early to mid nineties I was doing sound sculpture in the tradition of post - object conceptual art, but these days that has faded away and now as an exhibiting Artist I mostly show video and not always with sound... a lot of the works are silent - it depends on the ideas.

I work as a visual artist. I have been exhibiting mostly video installation for well over a decade, being an Artist is my passion. I have always had a great love of experimental music and sound. In the early to mid nineties I was doing sound sculpture in the tradition of post - object conceptual art, but these days that has faded away and now as an exhibiting Artist I mostly show video and not always with sound... a lot of the works are silent - it depends on the ideas. As for Music, the usual I guess.

Played in a rock band in the mid-eighties the way every one seems to who goes to Art School and when there is a thriving scene... In Sydney it was mostly guitar based. We improvised a lot and were quite high volume... you know the usual, exploring overtones, repetition and lots of layering... standard levels of experimentation, lots of live pub gigs and a couple of recordings on vinyl etc...

Then at the same time and in parallel was the much more conceptual work in relationship to the video installations. Now I am thinking more conceptually about the Music so it’s a kind of circular situation in some ways. When the Rock band imploded I concentrated on the Sound Art side of things for a long time and then little by little I felt that I wanted to explore a more central kind of musical form... did a couple of limited CDR things and then was encouraged by Torben Tilly who went and played some stuff to Dion and Rosy and then the whole fantastic Sigma Editions thing started and it finally gave me a real and credible outlet for the music and so much more, great friends. I love on the one hand the music’s autonomy and its independence from my work as an Artist, though of course its still a related approach... its just a much freer thing with less logistical baggage...
