Peter Cusack is a London based sound artist, musician and environmental recordist with a special interest in acoustic ecology. His work ranges from community arts to research into the role of sound in our sense of place. Cusack initiated a wide range of projects. While the “Favourite Sounds Project” has the aim to discover what people find positive about their everyday sound environment, his project ‘Sounds From Dangerous Places’ examines the soundscapes of sites of major environmental damage. Cusack also produced ‘Vermilion Sounds’ – the environmental sound program – for ResonanceFM Radio, London. He lectures on ‘Sound Arts & Design’ at the London College of Communication and was for 3 years a Research Fellow on the multidisciplinary multi-university ‘Positive Soundscapes Project’. His CD releases include ‘Your Favourite London Sounds’ (Resonance), ‘Baikal Ice’ (ReR), ’Favourite Sounds of Beijing’ (Subjam).
