For the past two decades Michael Northam has been cultivating a personal style through an exploration of deep inner experiences through sound. His compositions are based on audio mixes of improvisations on unusual (and self-designed) electro-acoustic instruments interwoven with field recordings from various locations around the world. He has been commissioned to create work for Radio Deutschland Kulture, ORF, Wego, MutsuCrispen, and many other dance, film and theater productions. He was recently a resident at the Villa Waldberta near Munich Germany, where he worked on live surround sound to accompany the performance work BARDO by artist Judith Egger. He has over 20 published sound-works held in high esteem.
