Chris Ruffoni

Chris Ruffoni (b. 1988) is a sound artist and music maker living in Marsden, Huddersfield. His experimental practice is based on listening and may include performance, installation, composition and facilitation. Chris believes that through a mindful appreciation of our sonic surroundings we can deepen our connection with nature, leading to profound positive changes to our wellbeing. He is interested in creating work that is aleatoric and organic, patterned but chaotic, responsive but uncontrollable. His output has recently taken a sculptural turn, incorporating musical instrument design, electronics and mechanics.

Ruffoni is passionate about being active in local art communities; he is a co-founder of DIY experimental events organisation New Weird Huddersfield, produces events for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Marsden Jazz Festival, lectures part-time in the music department of the University of Huddersfield, and for several years worked for local arts and mental health organisation, Hoot Creative Arts.
