Sound artist John Wynne has a PhD from Goldsmiths College, University of London. His award-winning work, which is often research-led, is made for museums, galleries and public spaces, as well as for radio: it ranges from massive installations to delicate sculptural works and from architectural sound drawings to flying radios. Long-term research projects have included working with speakers of endangered languages in Africa and Canada and with heart and lung transplant patients in the UK. For 3 years he had his own programme called Upcountry on ResonanceFM in London, where he "invited Tammy Wynette to have tea with Pierre Henry - in a thunderstorm" (Ed Baxter). He is a Reader in Sound Arts at the University of the Arts London, and a core member of the CRiSAP research centre.
