soundmappings are my most frequent sound works. they respond to locations via ambient recorded sounds sampled, processed, looped & layered to reference the web of routes taken. they are intended to question or break issues around ownership of social / political / linguistic / medical or other zones. most frequently they are presented with text - whether prerecorded or performed live. some have been presented with visuals or are part of multimedia presentations and installations.
