Composition and Sound Art Work

In 2008, I visited Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm for the first time. After making some preliminary quadrophonic tape and early digital performer compositions in the mid-90s, I had long since given up ever doing electro-acoustic music again because of the expense, and the way studios were locked up inside institutions. But here was a place to begin again. Then I went to the Royal Music Academy, and took a Masters degree in Electroacoustic Composition, where I had teh immense luck to meet wonderful people who taught me all about it,most especially Bill Brunson. And now I am taking a PhD in Music at Lund university, where a large part of my project has continued to be based around electroacoustic and sound installation work. Here is a list of compositions to date.
