Currently devising this forthcoming exhibition in collaboration with artist Katie Schwab and curator Rebecca Lewin.
A 12 minute sodcast/happening/frequency occupation devised by myself and Colin Priest is now part of the Sound Portal programme at Chelsea College of Art. Listen out for 150 mobiles ringing as part of the inspiring programme of sound devised for the Sound as Measure symposium.

I’ll be performing at the De La Warr Pavilion on June 22nd as part of the Dear Serge event.
“The third episode of Sensing Cities, discusses with sound artist Dan Scott about his practice, the use of field recordings and his work on Iain Sinclair’s Stone Tape Shuffle, the first of a limited vinyl edition series of spoken word albums released by Test Centre. Stone Tape Shuffle features the writer reading a selection of excerpts from his writings including Lud Heat, Downriver, White Chappell Scarlet Tracings and Suicide Bridge. Scott’s been following in Sinclair’s steps around the locations that inspired the texts, recording both the narrative voice and the sounds surrounding it. We talk about imaginary naive ethnographers, words, memory and bringing book characters to life, sound design strategies and other possibilities of recording sound in this particular context of narrating the urban.”
Thanks to Jotta and Soundfjord for inviting me for an interview:
2013′s Aurality course has begun. Discussions so far have included tennis on the radio, listening to Ventolin inhalers, the posh soundscapes of Primrose Hill and what gesture means in relation to sound.
Trish and I are very happy to have been invited to take part in this year’s Binaural residency programme. We’re doing a project with Trish’s father Rodney, a Catholic priest.
