Iain McCurdy is a composer of electroacoustic music and sound art originally from Belfast and currently based in Berlin. Having come from a background of writing for fixed medium, more recent work has focussed upon sound installation, exploring physical metaphors of compositional structures through the creative use of electronic sensors and innovative human interface design. Physical designs are minimalistic, using primary shapes and colours and utilising instinctive user inputs. Similarly, his musicincreasingly aims to direct the listener to the key concerns of the work through simple coherence rather than to misdirect through layers of complexity.
