DAVID HANDFORD (b.1967) – Sonic and Visual Artist
My principal working material is sound, around which I create film, electronics, sculpture, music, assemblage, collage and installations.
A love of analogue and alchemical processes permeates the visual side of my practice, working with chemical reactions (super 8 film, 16mm film, bleach, fire etc) and low-tech transformation of visuals (oscilloscopes, TV circuit bending and synthesised video).
Through psychedelia and electronica, I now produce various
musics as dj Methodist and Ministry of Defiance, along with film and performance soundtracks under my own name.
I've received BBC R1, R3, 6music and international airplay, whilst my scores and artworks have been commissioned for various performances and exhibitions in England, Wales, Europe, London, and New York.
I am currently living in Devon, working on various projects.
