Exploring improvised ‘musicking’ and socially engaged arts practices I made a number of improvised performances and recordings. I presented this work on national television and worked with Dhaka Electronic Scene to develop workshops, performance and investigations into ‘narrative’ soundworks.

I also undertook citizen noise level readings as part of a critical investigation into ‘noise’ and its cultural interconnections.

Much of this work is collected in this artist’s book - My Neighbor Who Lives in the City of Mirrors near My House

As part of the residency I also connected with the local arts community by running a series of open forma and collaborative ‘Listening Groups’ with the intent of encouraging philosophical and personal discourses around sound and music - both in a Fine Arts context and where they intermingle with ‘popular music’.
