Originally from a visual arts background, electroacoustic musician Mark Harris has always had a strong interest in systems and generative processes in art and music. He has developed custom software applications which allow him to work with these processes in live performance. Harris usually works from heavily processed samples of live instruments and field recordings along with live synthesis, adding improvisational techniques to generate the work in real time. Although his work has a strong analytical and systems based approach, Harris aims to create a sense of space and place, in order to generate a strong emotional response in the listener.
