Published four books and written compositions for groups such as Apartment House and the Set Ensemble. Performed and exhibited internationally with artists such as Angharad Davies, Michael Pisaro, Sarah Hughes, and Jason Kahn. Festival appearances and residencies include Audiograft (Oxford), The Wulf (Los Angeles), LMC (London), I & E (Dublin), Geiger (Gothenberg), Blurred Edges (Hamburg), Forestry Commission England (Cumbria), Q-O2 (Belgium) and MOKS (Estonia).Work has been released on labels such as Another Timbre, Nadukeenumono, and Winds Measure. Current work looks at the nature of the arbitrary; writing compositions that primarily focus on the sound producing means rather than the sound itself, often utilising more and more fantastical methods to create sounds that are themselves, terribly ordinary. New works: Close Eclogues on Tiptoe, SYZYGy (with Trevor Simmons), and Azimuth, all forthcoming.
