Artist in Residence: Matt CollierJane Phillips Award 2017

01 November - 10 January 2018


Matthew graduated from Swansea, UWTSD in the summer of 2017 with a First Class Honours BA Degree in Music Technology. Working predominately with audio field recordings and found sound objects in the creation of sonic compositions, he also employs novel approaches to utilising technology in sound based live performances and installations.


As a result of having worked for many years facilitating rhythm-based activities primarily with children on the Autistic spectrum, his evolving practice explores the territories of interaction, sensory perception and atypical states of consciousness. Current topics of fascination include Acoustic Archaeology and Acoustic Architecture, the Neo-Confucian principle of Li with its focus on dynamic forms in nature, the neurobiological impact of rhythm entrainment, and the intriguing phenomena of Apophenia and Audio Pareidolia.


He is honoured to have received the Jane Phillips Award Residency, and to be the first Sonic Art practitioner to do so. He is also grateful for the opportunity to present the results of this residency at an exhibition in 'the […] space' in the New Year.
