A Subcultural Heritage.
Music as a mediator in the union of originating cultures and diversities. A specific interest in the formative early post punk independent music scene in Scotland and the subsequent progression into Rave culture. Commissioned works explore this area such as: "What's it called Cumbernauld", "Sheer Height←→ Total Shite" and "Scheemie". Gordon works from an archive of audio and visual material, observer/participant recordings from the party and post party culture of the time.
Gordon has an ongoing interest in education, with a history of creating intervention arts projects London wide, working with disenfranchised young people through community action research projects. He is currently working with Professor Andrew Ravenscroft on RadioActive, a ground-breaking research project based at UEL, RadioActive: Rethinking radio as radical pedagogy for inclusion, engagement and informal learning for social impact.
