Clay Gold is a British sound recording artist with an interest in social cybernetics. His recorded, performance and installation work considers the collection, processing, application, destruction and preservation of information within and away from the constraints of the human mind. Gold's multi-channel sound pieces use location recording, synthesis, Foley, and spot effects within a live performance context and are part of an exploration into actively collected, suppressed and promoted opinion or censorship and propaganda. He has been in collaboration with Filmgruppe Chaos from Berlin with whom he is producing Super-8 + sound films for projection and 5.1 surround sound at festivals and galleries in Europe and China. He is also working with Laura Moody from The Elysian Quartet on a performance/installation project and is also in collaboration with the composer Laonikos on a large scale piece for a quartet.
