Iain Findlay-Walsh

Iain Findlay-Walsh / Klaysstarr is a sound artist, composer and researcher whose work combines field recording and studio production with autoethnographic methods. He is interested in exploring and making connections between sound, space and personal agency, and in recasting his own everyday listening experiences as immersive encounters with augmented sonic realities. His work ranges across installation, performance, fixed-media and multichannel composition and includes presentations across the UK and Europe, including at Glasgow International, Experimentica and Counterflows festivals, as well as commissions from Arika and Radiophrenia. His releases are available across numerous labels and formats, most recently on Entr’acte, Antwerp (2019). His research on sound and listening has been presented across the UK, Europe and in the USA, and his writing on soundscapes and auditory perception is published through the Organised Sound journal. He is a Lecturer in Music at the University of Glasgow, teaching composition, experimental practice and sound art, while co-directing the Immersive Experiences lab on Virtual Reality in Arts and Humanities Research, and curating the spatial audio event series, INTER-. In addition to his activities as a sound artist, Iain regularly performs as an improviser and multi-instrumentalist, most recently with experimental doom project Zoming Flakes (alongside Fritz Welch and Louise Ahl). He was previously an instigator and agitator in improvising noise/pop group In Posterface and with notorious prog-punk maximalists Lapsus Linguae.
