Emily Peasgood is a BASCA award-winning composer, sound artist and visual artist. She creates interactive artworks for galleries and public spaces, ranging from large-scale community events to intimate sound installations.

Peasgood aims to push the boundaries of multi-disciplinary interactive sound installation and extend her practice to the widest possible audience. Her work is described as magical (The Times), evocative (The Telegraph), and memorable (A-N). Recent works include: Sidney Cooper's Living Room (2019), Never Again (Ideas Test, 2018), The Illusion of Conscious Thought (Coastal Currents, 2018), Requiem for Crossbones (Illuminate Productions for Merge Festival, 2018), BASCA winning Halfway to Heaven (Folkestone Triennial, 2017), LIFTED (Turner Contemporary & South Bank Centre, 2016), and BASCA nominated Crossing Over (Turner Contemporary, 2016) and BIRDS and other Stories (POW!
