Biography

Peter Consistently Falconer (b. 1982) is a sound artist, composer and musician based in the UK. Born in Hartlepool, Co. Durham, he now lives in Surrey, and is working towards a PhD in Music Composition at the University of Southampton.

His work is concerned telling new stories about imagined or possible alternative realities, using sonic journalism techniques in an artistic context.  Compositions involve field recordings, instrumental music, electroacoustic sound design, and narrative text. 

His PhD research aims to produce a series of artefacts documenting the history of a semi fictional County Durham seaside resort called Seaton Snook, from its establishment in medieval times to its sinister vanishing in the late 1960s. Visit the archive in progress at seatonsnook.com.

Peter is the house composer for Proxima Dance company, and welcomes commissions from contemporary dance practitioners.  Film and TV credits include projects by Mischief Theatre (Peter Pan Goes Wrong/BBC), Oli Mason, and Timothy Gaer.  Currently he is working with the National Trust property Speke Hall, to produce soundscapes and interactive artworks for visitors to the house. 

Achieved brief European notoriety as the singer of Prog Rock band Drifting Sun.  When not making musical noises, he is a voiceover artist, and walks his cat at night.
