Mark Peter Wright’s multidisciplinary practice investigates listening, place and time. His use of sound, film, objects and text often encounter themes relating to nature, industry and site-specific histories of migration and abandonment. Such preoccupations have inspired an acclaimed body of work that brings to debate both political and cultural aesthetics of subjectivity and place.
Wright was born in Kings Lynn in 1979. He studied at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London and Manchester Metropolitan University. He has exhibited and broadcast works internationally including Flat Time House, London, Barbican Centre, London, Queen Elizabeth Hall, South Bank Centre, London, British Library, London, Cabinet Magazine Gallery and on BBC Radio 3 and Resonance FM. In 2009 he was awarded the British Composer of the Year Award (Sonic Arts) for his work ‘A Quiet Reverie’ which premiered at IMT Gallery in 2008. In 2012 he was nominated for a Prix Ars Electronica award in Digital Musics & Sound Art. Wright is also the founder of Ear Room, an online publication exploring the use of sound in artistic practice.
