Seth Cooke is a sound recordist, drummer, improviser and process performer based in Bristol, UK.

As a field recordist he deletes, displaces and distorts material, preferring failed representation, aberrant modelling and perturbed or transient environments. He frequently overlooks microphones and omits to record the loci in which he operates.

His solo performances currently involve feedback and resonance. As a percussionist he plays traps and waste disposal sink. He sometimes enjoys the flexibility of improvisation and open composition.

He used to play drums for Hunting Lodge and Defibrillators. Current projects include a recurring duo with Dominic Lash and the Every Contact Leaves a Trace CDr label. He co-founded the Bang the Bore collective with Clive Henry in 2009.
