STEPHEN CORNFORD

Stephen Cornford is a sculptor working with music, sound and noise, whose interests lie in the relationship between the physical and spatial attributes of sounding objects, musical instruments and audio technologies and their acoustic properties or timbral characteristics. Using processes of mechanisation and automation to ensure that control of the resultant music is as contingent upon aleatoric sonic phenomena as it is on his own design of the system, Cornford's installations employ space as a physical and acoustic substance in order to provoke the audience into a durational and subjective encounter with the work.

Stephen Cornford currently lives in Devon and works in a barn. Over the last three years he has exhibited and performed widely at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe, including Mediations Biennale, Poland; Diskurs 07, Germany and Arnolfini, Bristol. He is one half of the mechanised rock band Human Separation and his own solo work straddles the practices of experimental music, kinetic sculpture and guerilla actions. He has recently graduated from an MA at Dartington College of Arts.
