Adam Denton/SW1N-HUNTER


Adam Denton is a sound artist. Musician and producer. By amplifying noise making devices such as mobile phones, radios and cassette tapes, Denton composes live improvised performances in an experimental blend of sound art and performance. His life-long solo learning project SW1N-HUNTER follows this abstract approach to sound. Fuelled by elements from frequency sculpture, instrumental mutations, field recordings etc., Denton’s feedback driven compositions trigger impact in its listeners, unravelling and expanding with a sense of déjà vu. 

As well as performing in venues, in 2013 Denton co-initiated the independent performance venue TOPH (The Old Police House, Gateshead) with Mark Wardlaw and Mariam Rezaei. The abandoned police station hosts both noise and ambience artists locally and globally, their performances archived at twitch.tv/theoldpolicehouse. Published audio works include Opal Tapes, Fort Evil Fruit, Industrial Coast, Blackest Rainbow, LF Records, Vanity Pill, The Audacious Art Experiment, KIKS/Girlfriend, Discombobulate, Base Materialism and Fuse Editions. More is to come as Denton currently works on his PhD research at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queens University, Belfast and an artist residence at the Wellcome Centre for Mitochondrial Research.
