Research Themes
Research Summary

Over the past few years my major research has centered round the relationship between music and film and the search for a 'music equivalent'. To this end I have made several films featuring musicians, in particular with pianist Katharina Wolpe and cellist Anton Lukoszeviesze. Considering music helps me to think about film structurally. It presents challenges: how can I reflect the form and rigour of the music? Can film embody music? Where is music expressed? Does what I see change what I hear? I am fascinated by the act of playing, of touch, and the moment when someone becomes the performer. While still choosing to take the act and site of musical performance as my primary source of imagery, I am exploring ways of introducing other imagery, to interrupt the ultimate linearity of the score in performance and expand the filmic possibilities. Before I went on to study at the Slade, within what was then the Experimental Media area, I studied sculpture at Canterbury College of Art. My interest in material, the actual, the physical - is perhaps responsible for my abiding interest and commitment to working primarily with 16mm film (although most of my recent musical performance works are finished digitally because of the sound quality). This last year or so I've started making objects again. Photography, although secondary, has always run alongside my film-making.
