Mark Peter Wright

Mark Peter Wright (b.1979, Kings Lynn, UK) is a London based sound artist, active in the field of phonography and soundscape composition. His work addresses complex auditory issues relating to the phenomenology of space, historical site specifics, environmental listening and the philosophy of hearing itself. His practice often investigates ideas pertaining to landscape, architecture and the holistic experience of natural, often inaudible elements. Wright has produced works across a variety of outputs including galleries, labels, radio, theatre, film, and public spaces. In 2009 he was awarded the British Composer of the Year in Sonic Arts for his work A Quiet Reverie, which premiered at the IMT Gallery, London and featured on BBC Radio 3. Wright holds a postgraduate masters degree in sound arts and gives artist talks and workshops regularly. He is also the founder of Ear Room, an online publication exploring the creative use of sound in artistic practice.
