Working across a range of modalities, daz was a musician and sound engineer before becoming a surround-sound & sound-art facilitator and systems consultant. Software tools he has developed have featured in both ComputerMusic and MusicTech magazines (for which he's also been a contributing author), and he was instrumental in developing the SoundSpiral 52-channel inflatable Surround-Sound and Arts venue for the London2012 Cultural Olympiad.
As a visualist and performer he combines his musical aptitude with live-coding and video manipulation, and as an artist works regularly with photo and video, for which he often creates bespoke code and tooling. Currently resident artist with both Slumgothic (venue) and Gibbon Records (label) daz has taught as a visiting artist (live-art, visuals, technology) and presented to a variety of conferences in the sound-art & experimental music fields.
