I’m Lewis Sykes aka Prodical. Hi.
I really like music, sound, animation, interaction and technology.
I pursue these interests through work, study and play – and the blurry bits in between.
I’m a member of the progressive AV collective The Sancho Plan.
Until recently I worked with the creative media agency Chillifish.
My new media specialism is live web casting and I’ve freelanced for big institutions such as the Science Museum and BBC – in their central Communities Team, Top Of The Pops online and Radio 1.
I studied for an MA in Hypermedia Studies at Westminster University in ’99-’00.
I was a co-partner in the underground dance label Zip Dog Records (’94-’98) releasing dub and world music infused dance compilations, artist albums and 12″s.
I’m a veteran bass player of the dub dance scene – a liberator of sub-frequencies for semi-notable bands Emperor Sly (’91-’97) and Radical Dance Faction (’97-’98) – though I’ve played in a litany of unkowns since my early teens. More recently I’ve focused on music production in studio projects such as Pfink along with audiovisual experimentation with The iRiealists and Dublab All Stars.
I’m a qualified Youth & Community Worker specialising in Arts – I ran a series of innovative music, video and film projects between ’92-’99 for the London Boroughs of Richmond and Hounslow Youth Services. I actually work with some of the now not so young people I met in The Sancho Plan – which is kind of circular but also kind of nice.
There’s more… but I can already see your eyes glazing over…
