Stephan Barrett is a London-based pianist, field recordist, improviser and sound editor. Stephan performs as a duo with Helen Frosi under the moniker Postcards from the Volcano, and with Adam Kinsey as Littoral Transmissions. Both projects focus on the creation of site-sensitive works, the former working with materials gleaned walking London’s peri-urban landscapes, whilst the latter explores the sonic resonance of objects and the aquatic imaginary.
As an improviser, Stephan has performed at Arch 1, A.P.T, Iklectik, Full of Noises Festival, Harts Lane Gallery, Hundred Years Gallery, and New River Studios amongst other locations, and has created transmission works for amongst others: Radiophrenia, SonicaFM, Threads and Wandsworth radio. He has released albums with Colliding Lines, International Ephemera, Minimal Resource Manipulation, Steep Gloss, Visible Near Midnight Recordings, and currently produces Lee Navigations, a monthly radio show for Resonance Extra.
