I’m especially interested in making ‘landscapes’ in sound, music and text – often about everyday experience in relation to place.

Making Place (Downham Market mix) from novamara on Vimeo.

Making Place is my most recent performance work, made for performer Kate Halsall, and commissioned with funds from the Britten-Pears Foundation and the Arts Council. It’s a poetic exploration of place, and of place making, for one or two performers and live interactive processing of animation, text and audio and can be performed by any instrument capable of realising a version of the semi-improvisatory score.

Making Place follows on from Window – an interactive sound essay made in javascript and html5, in memory of John Cage. Window, made in 2011-12, won the 2012 New Media Writing Prize sponsored by if:book. Leonardo Flores has since written this perceptive (and poetic) review.I’m just finishing up the iOS app version – coming September 2014. Contact me if you’d like to beta test.
