Since 2005 Simon Whetham (UK) has developed a practice of working with sonic activity as a raw material for creation. He uses environmental sound, employing a variety of methods and techniques in order to obtain often unnoticed and obscured sonic phenomena. He presents his work Channeling, that he is currently developing during his residency at Witte Rook in Breda: numerous found and broken devices and electronics that purl, hiss and screech as they come back alive. https://www.simonwhetham.co.uk/
