Research Focus

Drawing upon the situational knowledges of practice research, my thesis investigates the capacity of sound to observe and give voice to changing ecosystems: specifically, the sound of ebullition in Northern Irish peatlands and the ‘singing’ sand dunes of the Rub’ al Khali desert (UAE). The new insights these methods of sonic practice yield open dialogue between environmental humanities and sciences, interrogating the need for a ‘sound studies in/of the Anthropocene’. From these materials, my compositional practice explores different experiential representations of these environments. 

My recent Master's thesis at the University of Cambridge was an exploration of architecture and acoustics through spatial composition, looking at how spaces manifest sound, and how music creates and shapes space through its acoustic properties and cultural codes.
