Iain Armstrong is a composer and sound artist based in Birmingham, UK. Working almost exclusively with recordings of the sound environment, his practice aims to expose the inherent musicality of this material through aural analysis, digital manipulation and the act of composition and performance. He creates works for fixed media that receive regular presentations in both the UK and abroad. His work spans acousmatic music, sound installation, theatre sound design, participatory practice and live performance.
Armstrong is one half of the performing/composing duo ‘Anvil & Stirrup’ with Antti Sakari Saario and until recently was a member of BiLE (Birmingham Laptop Ensemble). He is also a co-director of SOUNDkitchen, a Birmingham based composer collective dedicated to the creation and presentation of experimental music and sound art.
