Full text not available from this repository.


The composition and sound design for the artwork Company of Trees was a commission by Ffotogallery & Wales In Venice to work with the artist Helen Sear as part of her exhibition …the rest is smoke, which was shown at the Venice Biennale 2015. The composition was initially commissioned as a response to a brief that set out speculative themes and sound materials, and subsequently developed into a more collaborative project between the artist and composer resulting in an expanded set of concepts and audiovisual designs for the overall artwork. The composition was accompanied by a published essay that further explored and set out the conceptual and musical reference points for the project.
