R&D Disintegrated solutions is a Hobart-based experimental creative space run by artists Dylan Sheridan and Richie Cyngler. Dylan Sheridan is a composer. He began his formal studies at the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music and completed his Master's degree at the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, USA. Dylan is interested in expanding the theatrical nature of concert music through the use of image, lighting, musical sculpture and unconventional use of space. His works typically incorporate custom built objects, instruments and software, interactive technologies and are presented in increasingly unconventional settings - from concert halls to living rooms, art galleries, gunpowder magazines, car washes and online. He recently presented 'Np423b: empty orchestra'  - his first solo show in a white cube gallery - at Contemporary Art Tasmania.

Richie Cyngler explores the post-human struggle through improvised performance, sound and interactivity. Richie believes that consciousness is a technology in the early stages of development. He has performed and exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally at some interesting venues and events. Richie’s work has been supported by many lumbering institutions, he is currently completing his Master of Fine Arts through one of them. His most recent work is Airplay, in collaboration with Joseph Shrimpton; a series of wind based temporary public sound sculptures.

They began working together through Undiscipline Lab 2017 because they both wanted to be involved in and foster creative work with new media technologies in Hobart. They currently run workshops on the use/ misuse/ appropriation of technology and are users and proponents of open source tech and ethos.
