Henry McPherson is an artist, improvising performer, researcher and composer, from the United Kingdom. His creative practice draws widely across the visual, sonic, kinetic and somatic, emerging in a shifting exploration of the myriad overlapping forms of communication, rooted in a desire to express the interconnectedness of things.

Henry is a founding member of Improvising trio Noisebringers (with Brice Catherin, FR; Maria Sappho, USA), and is one third of the queer chamber trio Savage Parade (with Adam Hall, USA, and Inkeri Kallio, FI). He has recently undertaken residency collaborations with Ngallery (GR), and held the position of artist in residence at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Alberta, CA), and at Despina gallery (Rio de Janeiro, BR) with the Fruitmarket gallery (Edinburgh, UK). He is co-editor and curator of the MASS collection, a monthly online publication of discursive art, articles, and opinion pieces addressing global issues.

Henry is a current doctoral student at the University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Research in New Music, and Research Centre for Performance Practice, supported by a PhD Studentship in Music and Dance in association with Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
