Jack is a music producer, instrumentalist, audio visual artist and current PhD candidate. Jack’s passion for music began at an early age, where he started to learn how to play a variety of instruments and engage with different forms of musical composition. As he progressed through education, he embarked upon a three year Music Production course at the University of Central Lancashire, which he completed with a first class honours degree. Jack has been involved in a variety of creative solo projects, working with large scale audio and visual installation pieces which have been brought to public domain, and curating smaller online projects through various social media outlets.
Currently, Jack is undertaking a full time PhD, basing his research in the design and implementation of meaningful sound interfaces.. During his time as a PhD candidate, Jack will develop a range of musical interfaces based around a cross pollination of methodologies from varying disciplines to produce creative and intuitive technologies to provide novel and accessible methods of composing and consuming music.
