The first two sets of poems from the residency have appeared on Electronic Voice Phenomena. This is the website for a fantastic touring project exploring new approaches to sound, voice, technology and writing – coming to an arts centre near you in May.
The first set of poems, Describing Silence (6 Distortions), draws on my experiences in UCL’s anechoic chamber.
The second set, Tip-of-the-Tongue Phenomena, channels the ‘tip-of-the-tongue’ state through a series of early-to-mid 80s chart-toppers.
More to come in a few weeks…

We were really pleased to be featured on the Today programme last Saturday! Click here and scroll through to 1:16 to listen (available until Friday 4th May).
As part of the residency, I’m going to be organising a series of conversations bringing together scientists and poets, artists and thinkers around the common topic of the voice.
The first conversation, entitled Bodily Voices, takes place between Sophie Scott and Steven Connor on Tuesday 24th April from 6.30-7.30pm.
