About

baldwin-watching-baldwin

I am a composer, curator, engraver, performer, and researcher currently living in England.

My current artistic work investigates ways of composing the background of musical and social performance events. Thus far, this has included directing the amount of attention given to perceiving sounds and emotions during social interactions and performances of other pieces of music taking place within concert environments. Recently, I explored the physicality, ephemerality, and interpersonal relationality and memory of music making through a reconsideration of documentation practices surrounding musical work. That led to an expanded conceptualization of the definition and limits of a musical score to include documents of musical performance such as video and audio recordings, as well as the musical and embodied memories of living human beings. Prior, I focused on the material impermanency of scores, and the visual and psychological excesses and complexities of musical notations.

I have recently been awarded a PhD in music composition from the University of Huddersfield for a course of research titled Effaced, Reflected, Being: Documents and/of/as Musicking Bodies.

Together with Louis d’Heudieres and David Pocknee, I curate WEISSLICH, a concert series and platform for work happening at and around the intersection of experimental music and performance art practices.

I also provide typesetting services.

Let’s talk; get in touch with me.
