She has a BA in Sonic Art and holds a Masters in Communication Art & Design from the Royal College of Art. Leslie has exhibited widely across Europe and the UK.
MortonUnderwood work together as musical instrument makers and frequently perform together using the objects they have created. Recently they have been working on 3D printed mouth pieces for tuba and saxophone, have performed Steve Reich’s Pendulum Music at Birmingham’s Town Hall and have started “If Wet…” a monthly night of Sonic Exploration in a rural village hall. However, “Field Augmentation” is the first time they have worked together to make an album; it is a collection of six works all of which were made in a different location and have had a pre-recorded sound introduced into the space via a battery powered amplifier. The resulting works are field recordings of this process.
