“Andy Pink's score I loved. Seamless, dancey, clever, inventive and upbeat.
Just right.”

“Andy Pink's score fills the stage with waves of clashing, grinding noise. The sound is a deliberate assault on the dancers, who appear to be flung around by its force - catapulted into flailing, staggered lines, or dashed, twisting, to the floor.” Judith Mackrell The Guardian

I specialise in collaboration. I collaborate to find a unique language for contemporary performances. I collaborate because it’s a powerful way to realise art. I collaborate because I love it. Collaboration for me involves paradox and heightened creativity. I strive to discover Sounds that transform and Music that interrogates. I strive to illuminate through how we collaborate.

Cape Farewell

Andy Pink and multidisciplinary designer Ingrid Hu have jointly won The Cape Farewell Foundation competition for the public art installation at the Tidal Lagoon project in Swansea Bay. Their time based sculpture will feed off the clean energy generated from the tidal lagoon to create a living mist sculpture and sound installation.

Lol (Lots of Love)

"Andy Pink's inventive original score made excellent use of keyboard tapping, bleeping, and instant messaging pings to enhance as well as direct the movements. One dance number was constructed entirely to these sounds from intricate popping, locking and flowing steps, bringing loud applause from the audience. At the same time, this highly entertaining dance was melancholic in the way it captured how controlled we are by the Internet." Thailand's The Nation.
The LOL CD is available at Andy Pink’s BandCamp page.

“Linked at the speed of light, we live on a thrumming spider web of interconnectedness. There is no single centre any more, only multiple centres. sequential linear time has broken down into synchronous simultaneous time. The earth is encased in a spinning ring of communication satellites and everything is available everywhere in every moment. And we still barely know how to love one another or deal with the Lessons of Love” Andy Pink

Ai Weiwei

The Indigenous Dome Project is a collaboration between Chinese contemporary artist and activist Ai Weiwei and six Native American Indian artists which premiered at Miami Art Basel in December 2014. Andy Pink was commissioned by Navajo painter Tony Abeyta to write a score for his contribution "Aqueous Acquiesce" to the dome project. Gravity and tides have infused Andy’s thinking in the creation of the score influenced by Ai Weiwei's concept title ‘Pull of the Moon’. The piece was created in surround sound with multiple loudspeakers placed around the perimeter of the dome.
