composition & sound

I am a composer and sound artist based in Glasgow. I work mainly with computer-mediated sound in various ways, both in performing and in making pieces. Most of my work combines field and source recording, improvisation and other forms of live performance, computer-based sound processing and sound spatialisation. I also make audio-visual pieces, using computer-based animation and visual processing, and have worked with dance and music theatre. Much of my work is collaborative and in particular I am interested in how ensemble playing and other forms of collaboration are transformed through technological practice.

I am based at the University of Glasgow, where I am Professor of Sonic Practice, researching and teaching sonic arts and composition. Since 2017 I have been Dean of Graduate Studies for the College of Arts.
