I’m a freelance musician and sound designer who goes by the name Sleepsang. Throughout my career, I've been involved in diverse projects, including social campaigns and audio branding for prominent names like Monzo, The RCA, and Somerset House. Additionally, I co-produced a podcast for the Unlimited Festival at the Southbank Centre. I've collaborated with acclaimed artists Sebastian Koseda and Daisy Chambers-Dubus, on funded projects for Google Sustainability, Snapchat Lens Studio, and Festival of the Mind Sheffield. I recently completed a short documentary film score with filmmaker Joshua Spindler. I'm skilled in audio post-production, consistently delivering polished, professional and creative work.

Beyond collaborations and commercial ventures, I also release my own music. My creative approach merges ambient and electroacoustic elements with live coding techniques. I curated a monthly experimental music show called Hyperobjects on 1020 Radio. I regularly perform my music using the live-coding language TidalCycles.

In 2015, I completed my Sonic Arts MA at The University of Sheffield. I also developed the music & art branch of Sheffield’s award winning Foodhall Project , writing and delivering an Arts Council funded exhibition series “Social Sculpture” in 2019. As an artist myself I have a unique perspective on what makes a piece of work sing, bringing this to collaborations with visual, media, and sculpture artists.
