John Wynne

John Wynne has a PhD in Sound Art. His often research-intensive work includes "composed documentaries" for radio and installations for galleries and museums.

His work with endangered languages includes Hearing Voices, an award-winning radio piece based on click-languages in Botswana, and a current project with one of Canada's indigenous languages. Wynne was artist-in-residence, along with photographer Tim Wainwright, at a hospital for heart and lung transplantation near London, leading to a 24-channel gallery installation, a book, and a half-hour work for BBC Radio 3.
