Ant is a North Wales based musician and sound designer. Often working with field recordings and unconventionally applied instrumentation, he focuses on specific sound sources, exploring meaning and concept in digitally manipulated pieces. His love of contemporary electronic music is influenced by the ideas and practice of John Cage combined with the aesthetics of Steve Reich, Matmos and Aphex Twin.
Collaborative multimedia pieces have been shown as part of Blinc Digital Arts Festival 2011 and 2012 and on BBC’s “The Space”. He has completed compositional commissions for Cadw and Kew Palace as well as sound design projects for a number of permanent installations across the UK.
Since May 2012 he has been working on a number of long term Fluxus influenced piano projects alongside a more recent score for “Hear the Doors”, an independent feature film exploring ideas of existentialism and consciousness.
Ant is currently SoundAndMusic's first international Embedded artist in residence at ElektronMusikStudion in Stockholm.
