"I am driven by a curiosity towards stories and sounds that shape who we are, and how we relate to our surroundings. I am currently researching site-specific, musical performance in a residency with Oxford Contemporary Music, as well as working on a new composition for 'Voices of Exmoor' as part of Making Music's Adopt A Music Creator Scheme 2022.
