Gary Fisher 

Gary Fisher (b. 1984, Salford UK) is an artist and musician who explores sounds, objects, actions,  words and places through a continuous process of experimentation and enquiry. Central to the work is the on-going development of improvised playing, composing and recording practises exploring intersections between analogue and digital, acoustic and electronic, deliberate and accidental. Prominent themes include: found sounds, objects and materials; amplification of objects and surfaces and instinctive play versus considered deliberation. After graduating from University of Salford in 2008 with BA in Visual Arts and already focussing on sound, Gary went on to develop his work independently for a number of years before in 2014 joining the MA Sound Arts programme chaired by David Toop at The London College of Communication and graduating in 2015.

Working solo and collaboratively for a number of years and Gary has created various live, recorded and site-based works including: in 2013: Xmas At The Mill with Terminal Cheesekcake, Islington Mill, Salford; in 2014, the experimental radio broadcast The Inaugural Terminal Program on Resonance FM London with artists Barry Dean and Gilda Manfring; a group improvisation in the installation of Allan Kaprow’s YARD at The Hepworth, Wakefield for David Toop and Rie Nakajima’s Sculpture series. In 2015: an ensemble performance with Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, members of London Sinfonietta and CRISAP for Marclay’s major exhibition at White Cube London; featured in Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market in Venice with Gilda Manuring and in collaboration with The  School For Curatorial Studies Venice. During April 2015 Gary was artist in residence for Noise Above Noise at the Penthouse, Manchester.
