About the artist
Using intuitive composition, field recording, improvisation and photography, Jez has been exploring his enjoyment of detail, simplicity and his emotive response to places and situations for over 3 decades.
Alongside performances, exhibitions and installations, Jez lectures and runs workshops on field recording and the act and art of listening. He also curates the ‘engraved glass’ label and the ‘a quiet position’ series of online releases / forums exploring the broad ideas surrounding field recording as a primary art of sound / sound art.
Recent work includes commissions for Tate Modern (UK), Artisphere (USA) and for organisations in Italy, Iceland, Japan, Spain and the UK. A section of his piece for Tate Modern was also chosen to be part of the ‘500 years of British Art’ series at Tate Britain.
His photographic scores have been performed around the world by a wide range of artists. jezrileyfrench.co.uk
