Short biography: 

Graeme Truslove is a composer and performer based in Glasgow, Scotland. His output includes: Electroacoustic and Instrumental Composition, Live Sound Design for Theatre, Sound-Art Installations, Audio-Visual Art, and Improvisation - performing on guitar and laptop in a variety of small ensembles. His work is largely concerned with conflicts between intuitive performance and the fixed-medium, often exploring how fixed-medium expressive and structural possibilities can be integrated into improvised performance and vice versa. His approach integrates multiple strata of musical time, ranging from macrostructure down to the formation of timbre itself, conceived in terms of the sonic grain.

Graeme has a Ph.D in composition from the University of Glasgow, where he studied with Nick Fells. He has held a compositional residency at L'Institut Universitari de l'Audiovisual IUA-UPF, Barcelona.
