Pro Vice-Chancellor Research and Knowledge Exchange

I joined Falmouth as Associate Professor in Music and Sound Art in 2010. Now as Pro Vice-Chancellor Research and Knowledge Exchange, I have overall responsibility for providing strategic leadership in RKE, and, as a member of the university’s executive board, play a central role in delivering on the university’s mission, vision, and strategy.

Delivering on our mission of ‘harnessing the fusion of creativity and technology as the foundation of the future economy’ necessitates staff and students being engaged in generating, sharing, and applying new knowledge and insights.  As such, I am committed to supporting the university community in developing an inclusive, dynamic, exploratory environment for research and knowledge exchange that embraces risk and learning from failure while confidently working towards world-leading outputs with transformative impact. Recognising students and the communities we serve as the primary beneficiaries of our research and knowledge exchange, I lead cross-institutional initiatives that drive collaboration and partnership and facilitate the translation of the University's research into knowledge that can be shared with our students and society at large.

My background is in music and sound art and my work has garnered international acclaim through a portfolio of award-winning creative works and publications.  My music has been performed and broadcast around Europe and North America and has won international competitions including Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition, Cornelius Cardew Prize, E.A.R (Hungarian Radio) and the George Butterworth prize. As a sound designer I have made permanent, multi-ward winning installations for The Imperial War Museum (UK), The New York Historical Society (USA), The Thomas Jefferson Museum (USA) and the Guinness Storehouse (IRL), amongst others. I am also an experienced mix engineer with credits including score mixes for The Domino Effect, The Village and Tin Star.  With architect Frances Crow, I am a partner in liminal, a practice that explores the relationship between sound, listening and space.  Our work together encompasses site-specific interventions, gallery installations, performances, research, and consultancy and is the basis of much of my scholarly research. In 2010 we won the prestigious PRS Foundation New Music Award for our piece, Organ of Corti, a work which went on to receive Phonurgia Nova award (Czech Republic), the John Connell Innovation Award (UK) and an honorary mention at Prix Ars Electronica (Austria).

I studied Music and Religious Studies at the University of Wales, Bangor and then completed a PhD in music at the University of Birmingham. During my enrolment at Birmingham, I undertook residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada; Les Ateliers UPIC, Paris; and the Technisches Universität, Berlin, where I was a guest of the DAAD. After working at Dartington College of Arts since 2001, I wrote Falmouth’s Creative Music Technology BA award, which launched in 2010 and for which I was previously course coordinator.  I have taught, examined, and undertaken a range of Higher Education quality assurance and validation roles across the UK, Europe, Hong Kong, and the USA.

Research Interests

Research interests and expertise

My research focusses on the relationship between sound and place, and the cultural history of sounding objects.  I approach this as a practitioner-scholar with a specialism in music and sound, but work across a range of media, including installation, performance, film, photography, and writing. I am committed to the complementary roles disparate research methodologies, including artistic practice, have in the generation of new insight, and my own work often blends multiple strands of investigation. Recent practice research and publication has focussed on both bells and loudspeakers as examples of sounding objects with rich, complex, and contested cultural histories.  

Beyond my current research preoccupations, I have expertise in music history from the mid 20th Century onwards with a particular interest in the interface between traditions of electroacoustic music (and in particular, acousmatic music) with both visual art (and in particular, photography), and popular music culture.  I also have significant technical expertise in sound recording, mixing and immersive audio.  

I have been Principal Investigator or project lead on a wide range of projects, including those funded by UKRI, the Wellcome Trust, PRS Foundation and Arts Council England.  I have also acted as co-investigator or co-director for networks including the AHRC-funded 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training and the Research England-funded South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN). I have been a member of the AHRC peer review college and reviewed grant applications for a number of international funding councils.  I have supervised 15 doctoral students to successful completion and examined 15 research degrees in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. 

In my previous role as Director of Research, I had coordinating oversight of the university’s recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), which saw Falmouth’s performance rise dramatically since we were last assessed in 2014.
