PhD Commentary (2015) available on University of Glasgow Thesis Repository

The commentary discusses the creative practice portfolio submitted for the PhD in Sonic Arts, focussing on the practices explored and developed during the course of the research.

The research investigated the process of “opening out” spaces with sound as an approach to sonic arts practice, investigating the spaces that sounds articulate, reveal and imply in our encounter with them. It positioned spatial aesthetics as a key consideration at each stage of the creative process and connected approaches to spatiality in sonic arts practices with contextual considerations drawn from, for example, phenomenological accounts of spatial and sonic experience, human geography, architecture and acoustic ecology.
