Rebecca is a musician, artist and educator. She produces audio works, performances, site-specific installations, film scores, broadcasts and publications.

Across all of these forms, location is an important consideration, as are the relationships between experiential, cognitive and cultural understandings of sound and musical materials. Using field recordings, compositions, archive materials and materials that are generated socially, she brings attention to a spectrum of listening forms and contexts. Often, her projects often develop through research involve other people and communities. Recent activity includes two commissions for the National Trust (https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/) and being part of the Soundfjord listening programme at Full of Noises Festival, Barrow-in-Furness (http://www.octopuscollective.org/)

Musically, she is interested in improvisation, working with field recordings, site-specific composition/performance, decision-making and exploring the ideas, collaboration and communication between “professional” and “amateur” music makings. Rebecca gained an MA Music (with performance) at Nottingham University, studying with Robert Adlington, Dan Grimley and Carla Rees. She has also performed with various ensembles including the Standard Hill viol consort, Los Grecos, The Rosa Trio, Rarescale Flute Academy and in 2014/15, a series of concerts with Samuel Rodgers.

Rebecca is an associate artist with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art.
