Personal profile


Graeme Truslove is a composer and performer based in Glasgow, Scotland.  His output includes: sonic and audio-visual compositions, and improvised music – playing guitar and/or laptop in various solo and collaborative projects.  His work is largely concerned with conflicts between intuitive performance and the fixed-medium, often integrating microtemporal and immersive approaches to sound creation and performance.  He holds both an M.Eng in Electronics with Music, and a Ph.D. in Music Composition (practice based) from the University of Glasgow.  He currently lectures in Composition and Music Technology at the University of the West of Scotland.


Truslove has performed and exhibited his work internationally, and has attracted awards and nominations from: Metamorphoses (Belgium - 1st prize), The Salford Sonic Research Commission (UK), Creative Scotland, The British Council, The Performing Rights Society Foundation PRSF (UK), The Dewar Arts Award (Scotland), Sociedad General de Autores y Editores SGAE (Spain), The Prince’s Trust (UK), The Phonos Foundation (Spain), The Lumen Prize (UK), The International Computer Music Association (USA).

Area of academic expertise - outline

Electroacoustic Music, Sonic Art, Live Electronics, Visual Music, Audiovisual Art, Sound Design, Installation Design

Desired research direction

To further investigate experimental applications of current, or under-explored, immersive audio-visual technologies, exploring: projection mapping, multi-screen formats, Christie microtiles, virtual reality, ambisonics, wave-field synthesis, vector base amplitude panning, timbre-spatialisation and others.

To collaborate with researchers from other disciplines in data visualisation/sonification projects.  This is a wide remit, and I am open to a number of possible directions within this field.

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

Potential knowledge exchange collaborations could include:


Sound and music for film, audiovisual art and new media.

Interactive audio, or audiovisual, interface design.

Live electronics, in collaboration with solo musicians and ensembles.

Audio/audiovisual installations for museums, art galleries and public spaces.


My solo and collaborative work embraces the limits of auditory and visual perception, and as such it can serve to exploit the aesthetic possibilities of new and emerging audio and audiovisual technologies.  I welcome proposals from manufacturers looking to showcase the dynamic, spectral and spatial limits of their devices.
