Collection: James Rushford
James Rushford is an Australian composer-performer, whose work is drawn from specific concrète, improvised, avant-garde and collagist languages. In recent years, Rushford’s solo work has been guided by his theorisation of sonic images, particularly the shadow. Rushford has longstanding performance practices on piano, synthesizers and electroacoustic devices, and portative organ, bringing to all of these a delicacy of touch and a harmonic sensibility in which unorthodox tunings coexist with influences from fin de siècle Impressionism, the 20th century avant-garde, and many strains of popular music.
In 2017, James completed a Doctorate from the California Institute of the Arts.
