Stephen Conford is a media artist who works primarily by re-engineering consumer electronics into expressive and reflexive devices as a means of critiquing the ideologies they embody. "A state of enclosure” was recorded May 2020 for Amplify 2020: quarantine. “A finite number of rooms” was recorded June 2020 for the ‘Building A Better Reality’ Black Lives Matter benefit compilation on JMY Music. Both are loosely based pages from ‘A Score for Piano’ written by Sarah Hughes in 2010. “After their departure” consists of a hearth recording made in January 2021 and a cassette recorded years before and found again in March 2021. Thanks to Sarah Hughes, Jon Abbey & Brent Gutziet.
