My practice explores the sonic through gesture and performance. In particular low-key and low-fi sequences of performed tasks, re-constructed, re-purposed and ‘re-punked’ through secondary technology, bringing into question the authenticity of their first instantiation.
i am a mixed media artist working in sound mainly, but also visual art such as video and photography. i also write and have performed spoken work stuff. I am a dj spanning 20 odd years and use vinyl, flexidiscs and all sorts of other bits a lot.
Originally from Tennessee, I am a London based artist working with a variety of media. My background is in the performing arts as a classically trained dancer. I have a BA Honours degree in Sonic Art and hold a Masters Degree in Communication Art & Design from the Royal College of Art.
Charlotte Hailey-Watts (CHW)
is a practicing experimental artist in a variety of mediums- mainly installation, mixed media and actions. She is largely self-taught, apart from in Photography, which she studied for several years before dropping out. She was a keen musician until arthritis forced her to stop playing violin, saxophone and guitar and is fairly new to music production and sound art as a way to re-invigorate a form of music practice. She has worked in arts and mental health over the past couple of years and currently runs therapeutic sessions in two psychiatric units. This work overlaps with key interests in her personal practice with the uncomfortable and unspoken and art as catharsis for maker and, potentially, viewer. Spontaneous and improvisational practice and collaboration (NOT participation) are also areas of pursuit.

Stuart Tait has practiced mainly as a collaborative artist since graduating in 2000. His main practice has been as part of the collective AAS. AAS has a central group of four artists who administrate the group, but includes other artists who become part of AAS on a project-by-project basis. It is both a collaborative group and a mutating, experimental artwork in its own right. He has also been part of several other less formal collaborations, including with Plastique Fantastique, Parfyme, Henrik Schrat, and Calum F Kerr. He is also part of Reactor and audio collectives Samekhmem, Insectoid, and Milgram as well as being a former member of the Zero Point Collaboration, and the Red Line Group. His practice-based Ph.D., ‘Becoming Multiple: Collaboration in Contemporary Art Practice’ (2009), studied historical avant-gardes as varieties of collaborative formation and drew comparison with contemporary practices. The thesis drew on concepts from continental philosophy and sociology to develop the new concept of ‘molecular collaboration’.
