Dr. J. Milo Taylor is an artist, musician, producer and researcher, and is Course Leader for the BA (Hons) Sound Arts course at London College of Communication.
He is also Second Year Tutor on BA (Hons) Sound Arts and additionally leads a reading group and facilitates practical workshops on the MA Sound Arts course.
Milo’s teaching is informed by contemporary approaches to cybernetic theory and pedagogic / paragogic practices. This implies constant and productive movement between teaching, research and art making. Such questions arise as:
Milo has taught Sound Art for many years from a wide range of perspectives, including time at S.A.E London, (School of Audio Engineering), Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance (Course Leader: Performance Sound) and the University of Brighton (Senior Lecturer: Digital Music and Sound Arts).
His creative work is also multi-faceted – originally an electric anti-guitarist, he has produced short films, sound installations, radiophonic works (BBC, Resonance FM), electronic devices, theatre, puppetry performances, acoustic ecology works, multi-channel electro-acoustic music, contemporary dance collaborations and audio-visual performances. These works have been shown internationally in Europe, Africa, Asia and Central and North America.
Research interests include listening and histories of the senses, media archaeology, open-source / FLOSS, audio-visual composition, sound archives, sonic anthropology, archaeoacoustics, inclusive and participatory practice, entanglement and material culture, acoustic ecology, modularity, electronic cultures and the sonic world at large.
An invitation: Listen. Right now. Just for a while. What can you hear? What does it mean to you and how does it make you feel?
