My most recent work has involved the development of the Sonic Intoner series, a collection of maquettes, collages and posters inspired by the music intoners that were first presented by Piatti and Rissolo at the London Lyceum in 1914. Those early intoners made experimental sounds and were not well received by the public. However, my initial intentions were not musical but more concerned with situating the new Intoners in various rural and city locations, mainly as contemplational devices where people might reflect on environment challenges that confront us.
