Scott Douglas Gordon is an artist working predominantly in audio/visual art and electronic music.
Since releasing his first record in 2009 he has toured extensively through Europe and Japan sharing stages with some of the biggest names in electronic music like Aphex Twin, Gary Numan, The Battles, Flying Lotus and Autechre. He can be found in publications like VICE, FACT, the Skinny and performed live on BBC Radio 1 and Boiler Room.
His visual work which featured in the Royal Scottish Academy’s “New Contemporaries” 2009 ties in closely with his audio production and today has been amalgamated into “Assembled” a collective he formed along with three artists friends. The collective are currently working on projects backed by Alt Media Scotland and Creative Scotland, in which they are developing site specific audio visual installations in areas with extreme acoustic properties including disused grain silos, World War Two oil reserves and caves. Simultaneously “Assembled” are a record label with releases and events scheduled this year.
Stylistically Scott’s work centres around experimental sculptural sound. His audio production utilises sound design extensively but with a specific focus on the physicality and movement with the intention being that the final listening experience produces rich abstract sculpture based sonic compositions. Often the video work will serve as an extension of this but with objects and light manipulating the experience simultaneously to sound in an installation environment.
