Richy Carey

affiliation: The University of Glasgow

I am a composer and sound artist based in Glasgow. Broadly speaking, I make films about listening to film. I am interested in using film sound as a way of speculating as to the inherent agencies of materials and objects, in thinking about to what the sound of an object is, not the sound it makes. My practice explores the shared material language of image and sound, logography and phonetics, performing film (moving-image graphic scores) and essay film. I am currently doing an AHRC funded, practice research PhD between Glasgow University and Glasgow School of Art.


Recent works and collaborations include Film Score, a commissioned by Rhubaba Gallery choir (Sound Thought 2016, Glasgow CCA), INCONGRUOUS DIVA a vinyl album of Cara Tolmie’s performance work for Will Holder’s British Art Show exhibition (John Hansard Gallery, Southampton), Lichtspiel: Opus I, a contemporary score for Walther Ruttmann’s film for which I won the Scottish BAFTA New Talent composer award (GFF 2015, Stereo).


I also programme talks and events on sound and moving-image practice, such as Making Material: Materiality, Sound and Moving-Image (CCA Glasgow), Square Legs, Round Bowls (GFF 2015, Stereo) with work by Anneke Kampman, Beatrice Gibson, Joe Howe, Rob Churm and Torsten Lauschmann and Talking about Watching and Listening (GFF 2015, CCA Glasgow).
