Josh’s primary creative and academic outputs concern the philosophical investigation of temporality within music composition, with further interests embedded in cross-disciplinary praxis. Josh’s work uses New Music and Sound Art composition, performance, and installation to reflect upon diverse sonic contents and possibilities of space and objects, often using composition to reflect on or create place. Whilst the sonic arts are the primary medium of practice, film, design, architecture and print-making form dialogue with music and sound art, acting as spatial counterparts.
Examining place and displacement, his work focuses upon how music and sound rearticulate spaces and objects as temporal experiences, facilitating more sustained engagement and thought upon the spaces in question. Space, articulated as Place by virtue of Music.
Josh lectures composition and studio practice at UCLan on the BA (Hons) Music, BA (Hons) Music Production and MA Music courses.
