Video

I have been making videos since 1980. Early on I was making scratch videos, they were exhibited as art. 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.

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

As well as producing videos which are paid commissions, I make my own. I tend to approach them as a musician rather than as a writer. My approach takes in all aspects of collage, found media, and glitch. I like ambient video and I like the moving image to be both physically and emotionally moving. I also write soundtracks for other people’s videos and films.

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.
