Jez Riley French

my work involves a focus on located listening and recording, including the development and use of extended techniques, photographic scores and encouraging discussion around the borders of sound and sound culture. As an installation artist and music / sound improviser I have worked across several decades in various contexts. I also lead / curate workshops and speak on Sound Art and Located Sound (field recording) in a guest lecturer capacity at several universities and organisations.

Aspects of my work have been exhibited or performed at galleries including The Whitworth, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo etc.

Key works capture the sound of minerals dissolving, ants consuming fallen fruit, buildings vibrating, cables interacting with locales, the infrasound of domestic spaces, glaciers in Iceland and the tonal resonances of natural and human objects in the landscape.
