Mark Vernon
Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based artist who explores concepts of audio archaeology, magnetic memory and nostalgia through his sound works. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with the intimacy of the radio voice, environmental sound, obsolete media and the reappropriation of found sounds. A rich collection of domestic tape recordings; audio letters, dictated notes, answer-phone messages and other lost voices often find their way into his unorthodox soundworlds. These diverse elements are distilled into radiophonic compositions for broadcast, fixed media, installations and live performances. A keen advocate of radio as an art form, he co-runs and curates Glasgow’s art radio station, Radiophrenia, and has previously set up a number of other RSL art radio projects in the UK including Hair Waves, Nowhere Island Radio and Radio Tuesday. He is an award winning radio producer who has produced programmes internationally for stations including Resonance FM, VPRO, Sound Art Radio, Radio Revolten, Deutschland Radio Kultur, Radio Cona, Kunstradio, Wavefarm, RADIA and the BBC. Since 2011 he has co-run Lights Out Listening Group - a bi-monthly listening event focused on creative uses of sound and radio that takes place in complete darkness. His solo music projects have been published through labels including Kye, Glistening Examples, Canti Magnetici, Flaming Pines, Misanthropic Agenda, Entr’acte, 3Leaves and his own meagre resource imprint. He performs regularly at venues and galleries in the UK, Europe and beyond including festival appearances at Full of Noises, Hideous Porta, Apologies in Advance, Tectonics, Counterflows, Supernormal (UK), Radio Revolten (Germany), Untape Me (Austria) Sonikas (Spain), Longueur d’ondes (France) and Soundtiago (Chile).
