Dr Chris Dooks
I am a sound artist and photographer producing works in residencies, for community practice and artist walks.
My sound art has revolved around shellac record performances, artist audiobooks and broken instruments.
I also release music involving field recording and electronics on various imprints. My doctorate from 2009-2015 took the form of an expansive vinyl trilogy.
My photography has been both personal and commercial. The work over the last five years has been for Edinburgh International Book Festival, BBC News, various children’s clothing companies, portrait commissions and community project work.
I have been an artist-in-residence in various UK and European locales for around twenty years. I also teach and I am an honorary research fellow at The University of Edinburgh . In the past I wrote and directed arts television programmes.
I am also on the board of The Travelling Gallery .
I like making mixtapes, you can listen.
