Bio:

I am an artist living and working in Glasgow. I graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2019 with first class honours in violin performance where I spent a good deal of time composing, performing and showcasing the contemporary, experimental works of my peers. Since graduating I have recorded and am writing/producing an album of contemporary-rooted folk with my duo Josiah & Ludwig (BBC Young Folk award nominees 2018), worked with composer Matthew Grouse on his Cryptic Nights event and began working with composer Rufus Isabel Elliot on it’s solo violin album, Several Sexual Signs for solo violin. In November 2019 Red Note ensemble premiered a piece I wrote for oboe and cello at sound festival; I remixed it in application.PRESSING. Nevis Ensemble commissioned a couple of pieces in 2019/20, one for solo French horn and electronics and another for ensemble. In 2020, during lockdown one in the UK, I made Young Performer Stallion for performer and motion detection, this will be included in Klingt gut 2020/21 alongside a multichannel piece from 2018, Nu bērni (poo on poo). The largest project in 2021 I have been working on has been for the RCS, after winning the Craig Armstrong Prize 2019/20 they commissioned a multi-media piece, due to be completed this year as a short-film style audiovisual piece, I.Been a bad boy:-cut me loose_. Further performances and work performances include Sound/Image 2019, London with two acousmatic pieces, INTER, Sonic Nights, PLUG in Glasgow across multiple years from 2016-. This year will also see work created by noise.pocket, experimental rap/beat-stuff, featuring rapper Patrick Shand and myself, in which I am creating beats and visuals for an album/EP.
