Douglas Benford

Douglas Benford is a sound artist and composer based in London:

“As a composer and sound artist, I have been involved in various audio genres since the late 1980s, performing at institutions in the UK (Bristol’s Arnolfini, London’s Science Museum, Tate Modern, The Roundhouse, ICA and Glasgow’s CCA), festivals worldwide (Mutek, Synch, Transmediale) and had installation work in numerous UK galleries (Inc. London, Swansea, Gloucestershire and Essex). After numerous electronica releases in my ‘si-cut.db’ guise, in the past decade I have focused on acoustic improvisation and installations, using field recordings, classical instruments, vocals and children’s toys. My regular collaborators include Blanca Regina, poet Tamar Yoseloff, Angharad Davies, Lina Lapelyte, Steve Beresford, Clive Bell, Sue Lynch, sculptor Rob Olins, as well as - in the past - pop group Saint Etienne, Jem Finer (The Pogues), Momus, Rod Thomas (Bright Light Bright Light), Scanner, Stephan Mathieu and Andrew Weatherall. I am also co-curator with Iris Garrelfs since 1996, of Sprawl audio events in London.”
