Video

I have been making videos since 1980. I cut my video teeth at art school, and as video grew huge in the 1980s, I was in London in the middle of it all. Early on I was making scratch videos, which were exhibited as art and shown at film festivals.

Video production is a useful skillset to have, and I work in all aspects of video-making. Production, scriptwriting, videography, directing, post-production editing all come in handy on a regular basis.

As well as producing videos which are paid commissions, I make videos which I tend to approach as a musician rather than as a writer, an approach which takes in all aspects of collage, found media, and glitch i.e. embracing ‘mistakes’.

Creatively I’m particularly interested in the space between noise and music, where one becomes the other, and I improvise around found sounds and field recordings as I have done since I was ten years old. I like ambient video with its subtle presence, but I also like the moving image to be both physically and emotionally moving and I work with both of these aspects.

In addition, I write music and soundtracks for other people’s videos and films.
