Areas of expertise My compositional output includes work for acoustic ensemble, tape alone, live electronics and installation. I have collaborated on theatre, dance and film projects. I have also developed a violin-like electronic instrument which puts the performer at the focus of the electronic sound-world - my work for the instrument, Gipsy fugue, has been performed in the UK and the USA. I also have interests in theoretical issues relating to the work in semiotics of Charles Sanders Peirce.
