I loved capturing the joy of these dance and movement sessions for people with dementia across Hampshire.
Dougie Evans is a Digital Artist working across multiple art forms, with a specialism in capturing everyday life and human experiences. Previous work includes installations, photography, films, audio walks, music, and soundtracks.
My sound work has become recognisable by its unique mix of field recordings with real instruments and sound design. Whether a soundtrack for a show or a sound installation, my work always aims to transport the audience so that they feel like they are in a fictional world, even if that world is abstract or electronic. The use of familiar sounds in sometimes unfamiliar ways has become my trademark.
My visual work has a strong focus on portraits and documentary photography, capturing the beauty and interest of real people and real life. My equipment is portable, un-intrusive, weather proof, and produces extremely high quality images and videos. I can set up very quickly, and easily adapt to changing environments and locations.
Following the catastrophic typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines in november 2013, I have released an exclusive new track on an album titled Sisters and Brothers.
Sisters and Brothers is a charity album featuring some fantastic musicians from all over the world, and all the proceeds from the album will go directly to he British Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal. The album was put together by Tokyo based DJ and composer George Art Baker, and features a track from his alias Smoke Thief.
Bagyo means storm in Filipino, and the exclusive new track features an improvisation played by me on a Charango.
Compiled by George Art Baker.
Mastered by Danny Nugent.
Released on Escape To Yourself Records
Special thanks to James Boote for his help in making this happen.
I made a video for Coffee Blossom. Its only some basic graphics, but it gets the job done :o)
This trailer gives you a preview of my soundtrack for Lîla Dance’s new piece The Incredible Presence of a Remarkable Absence. The piece is just over 50mins and contains a real hot pot of music of sound and design, with cello and guitar music melting into field recordings of birds, crickets, and campfires. The piece is an incredibly moving work of physical theatre and it is a real honour to have been part of it.
Today is the end of my first week of an audio/visual 365 project, posting either a photo, video or an audiotrack each day for 365 days.
Full credit goes to Jerrel Jackson for the title of this project
Day 1 was my first self portrait and involved hitting the timer and some casual sprinting.
Day 2- The Bella, me and Bella had a quick coffee in small batch after walking around pride in Brighton.
Day 3- The Spider, this little guy moved onto the blueberry just as i walked over for a macro close up.
Day 4, Classic Mirror shot, this is an essential shot, and I expect to do a few more of these mirror self portraits over the year.
Day 5- In the Studio, spent the day recording ‘Kyo’.
Day 6- Window Ambience, this is an audio recording out of my bedroom window.
Day 7- Mel and Will, fantastic to see them both happy and well just a month before Mel gives birth to their first child.
Spent a highly productive and entertaining week in Eastleigh with Commotion Dance. Our last time together was one of my highlights from 2011, and its fantastic to be back in a studio with them. Here’s an exclusive preview picture of their new costumes.
It’s official! Jerrel Jackson & Dougie Evans are curating dance at this year’s I am Joy Festival.

We are extremely excited to bring Dance back into the heart of the festival, and will be anouncing a high quality program as soon as possible. Local dancers should keep their ears out for impending details about our pre-festival workshop.
Image-Line are running a sound design competition for their new animated logo, as a long time user of their software I felt compelled to enter. Here’s my entry
