Mark Vernon is a sound artist and radio producer based in Glasgow. His arts practice encompasses live performance, soundtracks, installations and radio broadcasts—often blurring the boundaries between art, music and broadcasting. His key areas of interest are the human voice, field recording and soundscape composition, musique concrète and the radio phonic combination of these elements in works for broadcast and live performance.

Mark has produced programmes and features internationally for radio stations including WFMU, RADIA, Resonance FM, CKUT, VPRO and the BBC. He has also been instrumental in setting up a number of temporary Restricted Service License (RSL) art radio stations in the UK including Hair Waves, Radio Tuesday and Nowhere Island Radio.

Together with Monica Brown, he runs the “Lights Out Listening Group,” a monthly listening event focused on creative uses of sound and radio that takes place in complete darkness. He also records and performs solo and in a variety of collaborative music.

Mark was selected as UZ arts artist in residence at Sura Medura, Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka in 2013 and is currently approaching the end of a two-year period as digital artist in residence at Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he has developed a series of new audio works for the context of hospital radio.
