GEMMA NASH: ARTIST https://gemmanashartist.com/

“I use sound to recover and reimagine stories about people, places and objects”

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a sound artist whose work focuses on re-imagining the ‘othered’ body and the complex relationship between medicine, disability and ethics.

BACKGROUND

I came to sound art through being a laptop DJ and VJ mixer.  Specialising in funky house and drum and bass under the name Crip2night, I later produced my own compositions and began to experiment with VJing. 

STYLE

I produce raw, authentic creative narratives about people, places and things.  I am more interested in the conceptual identity of my compositions rather than technical virtuosity. It is important that my pieces transmit intimacy – so I often work in a way that is collaborative, low tech and non-linear.

My work often involves unusual sonic reference points and objects that disrupt the natural sonic balance of a particular area.

COLLABORATIONS

I’m one half of duo CUTTER // NASH with Gareth Cutter. Fusing our shared interests in non-normative bodies, voices and queerness, we create eerie and seductive soundscapes using our voices, synthesisers, DAWs and hacked controllers.
