About Me

I was born in a tiny village in the UK, and moved to Barcelona in 2009, where I am now based. My career follows a colourful journey from working in optics to graduating in Psychology, working in mental health and homeless services, VJing to Graphic Design. I have a long-term passion for musical projects, which is why I work in parallel as a freelance VJ at Sala Apolo, where I make my mark with technicolour live visual performances under the artistic name, VJ AYL.

I am currently working as an in-house designer and co-create the new media art magazine, Audiovisual City.

VJing

In 2012 I started working under the artistic name VJ AYL.

The inspiration for VJ AYL comes from a Cosmocomic story, ‘Senze Colori,’ written by Italo Calvino, which describes how the world was before the existence of colour. It tells the story of how the character Ayl brings ‘varicoloured sumptuousness’ to an otherwise grey world. Ayl was born out of deep love for both music and visual art forms and experiments with video mixing and 3D graphics to explore the relationship between image and sound.
