Centred on emancipatory concerns and strongly influenced by the origins of activist, feminist and engaged art, Rory Pilgrim's work aims to challenge the ways in which we come together, talk, listen and aspire to social change. He works in a wide range of media, combining sound, songwriting, film, music video, drawing and performance.

Software Garden is a musical album mixing pop, electro, techno and instrumental influences. It explores the links between technology, disability and care in 11 tracks accompanied by videos. The image of the garden appears as a space for care and renewal, as well as a political space to bring people together. Software Garden offers an alternative place of affinity and support. Contributors from different generations come into contact with each other. British poet and disability advocate Carol Kallend shares her own experience of catastrophic access to care and her desire for robotic and digital technologies. Her lyrics intermingle with the voices of other contributors: singer Robyn Haddon, singer/performer Daisy Rodrigues and dancer/artist/choreographer Cassie Augusta Jørgensen.
