    I am an audio-visual artist who works primarily with electronic sound and video. For the past 30 years, my musical creativity and output has been paralleled with accompanying visuals, initially in live performance settings and more recently in fixed media composition. My visual work is driven by an interest in light, abstract imagery and the behaviour of forms over time. I seek to express visual media in music but also recognise the visual beauty in some of the imagery produced by animation. Abstract computer graphics can be programmed in precise detail, but when working with code and visual materials it is often the case that unexpected patterns reveal themselves. Frequently the figures, which emerge from chance outcomes of algorithmic processes, are the most intriguing.
