Musical Guest: Brian Cullen
Finished my degree in fine art in 2000 at NCAD. Had artistic leanings towards sound and video during my final year. Created low budget music (NO COMPUTER) for the two years following. Started my masters in music and media technology at trinity 2002 and still working at it! Trying to incorporate live sound with electronics to create music. Have played with live musicians and household objects usually bringing their sounds into Max/msp and abusing them in a whole manner of different ways. Hope to refine these techniques over the coming year.
