Richard Knight

Raised in the surroundings of conflicting natural beauty and industrial decay of northern England, many of Knight's primary influences are based around the clash between organic and electronic. Active in various genres/media, Knight is motivated by the the possibilities of encapsulating avant-garde stylings within more immediately unassuming mediums.

In addition to using computers as artistic tools, Knight often utilises specifically controlled feedback as an instrument. The unique method uses mixing desks as sound sources: a typically passive audio device subverted to become an expressive instrument. Of most intrigue is the tenuous area between feedback and feedforward – the hazy and perplexing cusp between order and chaos.
