Liam is a composer, sound artist, and instrument builder from Calgary. His work seeks to create a sense of place and reflects a fascination with the sounds and processes of the natural world. Through his music and sound installations, Liam encourages audiences to listen in new ways to the world around them. He creates acoustic and electroacoustic pieces for concert performance and builds sound sculptures that directly transform natural processes into musical sound. As a performer and improvisor, he builds physical and digital instruments to shape the sounds of his collaborators and works directly with the sounds of nature to create unique sonic environments.
Liam has performed and created installations across Canada, in the U.S.A., and Europe. His compositions have been performed by ensembles including Latitude 49, Alarm Will Sound, Sō Percussion, Bergamot Quartet, and the International Contemporary Ensemble.
