THE BLACK PLUME is a place where I exhibit my sound and musical activities. This includes new releases, performances, research and other stuff.

John Macedo is a sound artist and performer from London. He has incorporated everything from acoustic instruments and environmental sound to analogue and computer synthesis into his recorded works, live performances and sound installations. He has a pluralistic approach which reveals the ephemeral and hidden potential in all sounds, environments and technologies, often in intimate, immersive and intuitive ways. He performs live solo and has collaborated with artists including Phil Julian, John Butcher, Graham Dunning, Tom White, Michael Speers, and Artur Vidal, to name a few. He has had work released by Hideous Replica, Sound Holes, Beartowns Records etc as well as small run and object editions on his own label, The Black Plume Editions.
