Does music influence my practice? (Circa art magazine issue 115) vox pop
Loud music has always attracted me and certainly at times encouraged or influenced my decision to do stuff. Within various genres I enjoy the relationship of loud music to physical dance/action.
When I was younger I held a peer record for the number of stage dives during a gig. It was during a Nuclear Assault (socially aware hardcore thrash) gig (c1988) and I dove off the stage eleven times.
Some years later I used the action, if not the music, in a simple video work called Leaps into the Abyss (1996).
