Keep up to date with publications, interviews and releases!
Have a read of our pamphlet for the Time Making Space event at the Royal Academy of Arts
My latest article: “The architectural instrumentalist – exploring spatio-temporal interdependence in the composition of performed music and architectural space” has been published in the Design Ecologies peer-reviewed Journal – read it HERE
“I’m very interested in the material and acoustic properties of both architectural spaces and musical instruments, and I’m specifically excited by the idea that architectural space can be appropriated to behave as an extension of sound-producing instruments.”
I was recently interviewed by the British Music Collection – see the following link for full article! READ HERE
This Saturday night, I’m playing at the Barbican with experimental Japanese band: BOREDOMS!! Exciting! And there are still tickets left!! See if this description from the Barbican website can tempt you to come along:
“Leading this ‘happening’ by his band, Boredoms, EYƎ is surrounded by waves of percussion.
The experimental Japanese group direct one of the largest groups they’ve worked with yet in a sound-experience mixing the acoustic with the electronic.
In a development of the Boardrum pieces, a guest ensemble of 88 cymbals create swirling, crashing music with synthesisers and EYƎ’s trademark unconventional vocals.
This ticketed event is part Doug Aitken’s project Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening which takes over the Barbican from Saturday 27 June”

The Augmented Instrumentalist makes another appearance in print! This time in Neil Spiller’s new book “Educating Architects” – get it HERE
Come see my piece (and many other pieces!) at the RIBA open exhibition until the 3rd November – here are a few shots from today’s visit!
The ARCHITECTS JOURNAL have published a little book which focusses on the architecture work in this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and… I am featured! My piece THE AUGMENTED INSTRUMENTALIST is featured on page 33 – if you are a subscriber you can see the whole thing HERE – and a big wh00p to my friends too who also made it into the publication! :) If you are lucky enough to be in London during the next 2 weeks, you can still see the piece and catch the summer exhibition HERE – enjoy!
Wallpaper* magazine have published a gallery of all benches now installed in the London Pleasure Gardens! Take a look HERE and take a seat HERE – Lots of very interesting designs and a huge range of approaches and styles! If you do wish to visit the LPG, catch the DLR towards ‘Woolwich Arsenal’ and jump off at ‘Pontoon Dock’ station, then follow the creepy pink glow of the neon ‘pleasure’ sign… You won’t be disappointed!
I snapped a few shots of my piece in the RA Summer Exhibition the other morn – this one was my fave. Check out (and buy) the full thing HERE !! Until 12th August.
…Just a couple of snapshots from the talk I gave at last night’s RIBA organised Pecha Kucha Event called “the makings of”. You might recognise a few of the drawings from some of my earlier blog posts, but incase you don’t, why not have a look at some posts from the good ol’ days right H–E–R–E!! The Pecha Kucha night was truly great and introduced me to a huge range of very ineresting projects by other architects and designers. Check the full line up HERE
The latest Architectural Design book is now out and I am featured in it! :) In a section titled “Distinguishing Between the Drawn and the Made” my tutor Bob Sheil writes about ways that ‘making’ can inform the architectural design process in terms of developing and refining architectural performance. This approach of ‘design through making’ is something which I started to explore during my time studying with UNIT 23 and it’s an approach that I continue to interrogate in my work in practice. This edition of AD is certainly well worth a read (well all AD books are) and you can buy it HERE – (p.s:….If you want to see my drawings skip to pages 136 and 140 teehee) – also check out Bob’s other recent book HERE – Add to basket…
Check out my article on the Treptow Crematorium – from a trip funded by the SCALA travel bursary for my Brixton CPUL undergraduate project.
