Lee Patterson

Driven by a fascination with the unheard, Lee seeks out hidden sounds in things and places by using contact microphones, hydrophones and pick-ups, employing them as extra-sensory tools to test or probe for artistic and transformational potential.

His pioneering approach has led to a variety of projects both solo and collaborative, ranging from music theatre, environmental sound work, improvised music to radio broadcast, film soundtrack and installation.

Ongoing research starting in summer of 2022 includes 'wire-tapping' brownfield, meadow, heath and moorland plants to listen in to unseen and perhaps never before heard insects inside their herbaceous and grassland homes within calcareous and acidic environments. Lee has recorded peatland sounds for this project and will be performing them in November.
