Biography

I am a soundscape ecologist, a musician, composer and sound designer working under the pen name Missing Wolf. In 2017 I found myself in California on my Fellowship working with Dr Bernie Krause. Dr Krause mentored me in the techniques, protocols and wonders of soundscape ecology, the study of the natural world through the combined sounds of terrestrial and aquatic environments. A vital tool in environmental conservation, soundscape ecology has led to valuable insights that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. Since my Fellowship I have led soundscape explorations documenting soundscapes in the world's wild places, worked alongside conservation NGOs and been involved in the creation of soundscape art installations, reaching a wide audience. I am currently working on a PhD in soundscape ecology and the arts at Falmouth University, where I continue to fervently pursue the aims of my Fellowship. I have no doubt that much of my work has been made possible and enhanced by my Fellowship, with more still to come as I continue to listen to the voice of the wild.
