Gary Fisher is an artist and improviser who explores sounds, objects, actions, words and places through processes of experimentation and enquiry. He has made works for live radio, gallery installation, performance and published recordings. Central to the work is the on-going development of improvised playing, composing and recording practises exploring intersections between analogue and digital, acoustic and electronic, composed and accidental. He is particularly interested in using found sounds and materials, the amplification of objects and surfaces and site-specific responses.
After graduating from the University of Salford in 2008 with BA in Visual Arts and already focussing on sound, Gary went on to develop his work independently for a number of years before joining the Masters in Sound Arts programme chaired by David Toop at The London College of Communication and graduating in 2015.
Working solo and collaboratively Gary has created various live, recorded and site-based works including: the experimental radio broadcast The Inaugural Terminal Program on Resonance FM London with artists Barry Dean and Gilda Manfring; a group improvisation as YARD Collective in the 50th anniversary installation of Allan Kaprow’s YARD at The Hepworth Wakefield for David Toop and Rie Nakajima’s Sculpture series. In 2015 he played in an ensemble with Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, members of London Sinfonietta and CRISAP for Marclay’s major exhibition at White Cube London; during press week of Venice Biennale featured in Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market with Gilda Manfring and in collaboration with the School For Curatorial Studies Venice and during April 2015 Gary was artist in residence for Noise Above Noise at the Penthouse, Manchester.
