Residency 2014 - 2015: University Of Worcester

During the academic year 2014/15 I am Musician In Residence at the University Of Worcester. I'll be doing lots of playing at the University as well as programming some other gigs. I'll also be writing some new music and involved in various other things too. I've also got a Twiiter account for the project: Twitter (@miruow) and Tumblr.

Most recently I have been work with a group of third year art students to create a site specific piece which acts as a tour of the University. The compositions below are created from sounds sourced from various locations around the University. The students then created an accompanying artwork for each space and we presented the work as a guided tour of the University with Audio streaming via Soundcloud through smartphones and headphones. More about the project can be found here: Site & Sound Tumblr

If you want to get in touch about the project then you can email me.
