DUGAL MCKINNON . NZ
Sounds seen and unseen, heard, remembered and auralised, rare or abundant, spoken, sung, played, transduced, reproduced, transformed, and synthesised, measured and musical, unruly and feral, corporeal, material, environmental. Audible forms such as these populate the collusions – between sound, music, language, technologies and people – from which Dugal McKinnon’s work emerges. Outside these transitory zones, Dugal is Deputy Director of the New Zealand School of Music – Te Kōkī, where he teaches sonic art and composition, and is Director of the Lilburn Studios for Electronic Music.
