Jimmy Peggie is a sound artist based in Phoenix, AZ.  His artistic work is focused on environments - including atmospheres, radio transmissions, and repetitive fragments.   An appreciation that all things are abstract and in a state of flux - ever changing, imperfect and incomplete.

He also incorporates still and moving images as part of his creative practice using this medium to help identify a sense of place, natural processes and the transient nature of all things.

He has close interactions with artists from around the world and has had work included at many galleries and art spaces.  He currently records a monthly sound art radio show entitled 'Sound Across Distance' for Camp Radio from France. He has participated in 40+ albums.

"Sonic explorations that lend to an abstracted and textural approach to sound work incorporating environmental recordings, decaying fragments and radiophonic atmospheres. An appreciation that all things are impermanent, imperfect and incomplete." jimmy
