Ian Epps, a Sonic/Visual Artist, was born in Lakenheath, UK in 1977. He received his BFA from Alfred University, in 1999. His sound explorations are deeply invested in a fascination with how an object speaks, utters, and dissolves itself within its given surroundings. Through this, he treats sounds as building blocks. The blocks become pieces of information that synthesize space. Each block speaks, sings, and erodes, but together sound out the warmth and infinitely complex nature of impermanence.

His work has been exhibited in the Walker Art Center, Lovebytes Biennial (Sheffield, UK), Garage Projects (Atlanta, GA), A.I.R. Gallery (NY, NY), EYEDRUM (Atlanta, GA), and SIGGRAPH2004 (Los Angeles, CA). He has performed alongside and in collaboration with Rafael Toral, Andrew Deutsch and Pauline Oliveros, Ogurusu Norihide, Kenneth Kirschner, Mountains, Takeshi Mitsuhashi, Richard Devine, EVOL, Dave Gross and Liz Tonne, Joe McPhee, and collectively with Dan Walsh, and Jason Forrest aka Donna Summer under the name "the Computers".
