Michael Edwards

Born Cheshire, England, 1968. An early taste for heavy metal led through Beethoven to the weightier end of modern composition (with oboe playing along the way). Over-exposure to computer music whilst living in California and Paris led to temporary breadwinning as a software engineer but more importantly the skills to develop a range of computer music techniques from real-time digital instruments to self-contained algorithmic composition environments. Michael lives in Edinburgh and is active as a composer and performer playing saxophones, laptop, and MIDI wind controller.
