Craig Thomas Wells
Artist Norway http://sonicfolds.com/ Residency Period: June 2018
Craig Wells (BA, MA Ph.D.) is a sonic artist, composer, and researcher based in Bergen Norway. His work primarily centres around electroacoustic and acousmatic composition. His research interests oscillate around new materialism and phenomenology in relation to sound, listening, technology and the body. A central engagement in his practice is the fracturing of pre-recorded material with the intensity of the event and embodied gesture. Currently, he is focusing on multi channel speaker performances and ambisonics in order to find interesting and alternative ways of presenting, extending and concluding electronic music.
He works under mutliple monikers within a solo capacity; most notably Klunks and Refrains and he is a member of various collaborative projects including- Perfume, Broken Symbols, Waterplay and Pødre.
