Artist Statement: ‘Polyphonic Practice’ and the artist as conductor

I am a visual artist, singer-composer and performance maker, working in Bristol UK.

My work spans the mediums of performance, voice, drawing, music composition, sound art, video and artistic direction.

I research historical vocal forms to develop an exploratory contemporary practice around polyphony, multiplicty, and combinations of ‘voices’.
