My work is engaged with what lies beneath the surface. By unearthing elaborate, intricate, underlying structural possibilities and buried architecture, my aim is to build complexity embedded below the immediate aural impression. In a similar mode I am interested in the way tectonic forces act upon a surface where the subtle collision of energies push and pull against each other resulting in rippling, swirling and vibrating vivid soundscapes that are always changing. (Kate Moore, 2013)
