Murray Royston-Ward  graduated with an ARHC funded Masters in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University in 2014. His methodology is founded within improvised ‘musicking’ and socially engaged arts practices. By purposefully erasing any distinction between the creation, design, use and appreciation of audio technologies (whether they be electronic, organic, synthetic, ancient, modern etc.) he seeks to expand the rubric of improvised music practice and engage in collaborative meaning making.
