Wave Farm Artist-in-Residence, Mark Vernon, presents Audiology for Beginners: A self assessment radio hearing test.

Mark Vernon is a sound artist and radio producer based in Glasgow, Scotland. His arts practice encompasses live performance, soundtracks, installations and radio broadcasts--often blurring the boundaries between art, music and broadcasting. Vernon's key areas of interest are the human voice, field recording, musique concrète and the radiophonic combination of these elements in works for broadcast and live performance. Vernon has produced programs and features internationally for radio stations including WFMU, RADIA, Resonance FM, Wave Farm's WGXC, CKUT, VPRO and the BBC. He has also been instrumental in setting up a number of temporary RSL (Restricted Service License) art radio stations in the UK including Hair Waves, Radio Tuesday, Efford FM, and Nowhere Island Radio. Together with Monica Brown, he co-produces the Lights Out Listening Group--a monthly listening event focused on creative uses of sound and radio that takes place in complete darkness. Vernon records and performs solo and in a variety of collaborative music projects including Vernon & Burns and Hassle Hound with record releases on Staalplaat, Ultra Eczema, Entr'acte, Staubgold, and Gagarin Records. Recently he completed a two year period as Digital Artist-in-residence at Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he has been developing new audio works for the context of hospital radio as well as releasing the long playing sound effects record; Sounds of the Modern Hospital.
