Martin (b. 1981, U.K) is an artist with an interest in sound and language and their relationship to listening and meaning. His practice centres around experimental composition and improvisation but is demarcated by a wider and more nebulous border, and is defined by the search for it.
He is researching relationships between auditory and visual perception and new ways of employing the primary devices with which we write music. His text and graphic scores have been performed by musicians from around the world while his work has been shown at The Barbican Centre, Modern Art Oxford and Arnolfini, and used by Tate and BBC. He lives and works in Japan.
"And what do I point to by the inner activity of listening?"
