Andy Slater is a legally blind sound artist, musician, performer, and author. He produces sound compositions that are influenced by his unique hearing and thought process, which are artifacts of his disability. The majority of Slater’s work is soundtrack or sound design, creating organic-electronic simulated environments that evoke image and color where there is nothing to see. He is also a touring musician and performs with soul and rock band, the Velcro Lewis Group.
Slater’s disability is never the focus of his sound work, however, he chooses to address his blindness through his writing, theater performance, and publishing. He has divided his artwork into two factions: one is art about his disability and the other is art as a result of his disability.
