Musical Guest: Brian Cullen
Cullen finished a degree in fine art in 2000 at NCAD.He ad artistic leanings towards sound and video during his final year. He has created low budget music (ie no computer!) for the two years following and started a Masters in music and media technology at Trinity in 2002, which he is currently doing. Cullen incorporates live sound with electronics to create music. He has played with ‘live musicians and household objects’ usually bringing their sounds into Max/msp and abusing them in a whole manner of different ways. He hopes to refine these techniques over the coming year. He is part of the Music and Media Technologies Program at Trinity College Dublin.
