Max Eastley is an internationally recognised artist in the field of sound art. Since the late 1960s he has been investigating the relationship of chance to music, creating kinetic forms which produce or play with sound. Using electricity or the environmental forces of wind, water and ice, his sound sculptures play on a balance between the natural environment and human intervention.
Currently an Arts and Humanities Research Council Senior Researcher at Oxford Brookes University, Eastley is investigating aeolian phenomena through artistic practice and historical research. He is a participant in Audible Forces, a group of artists using the wind as an energy source. He has performed and exhibited internationally and his work is represented in the permanent collection of the Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany.www.maxeastley.co.uk
