Scott McLaughlin was born in Ireland (Co. Clare) in 1975. He playing in indie-rock bands until his mid-twenties, then studied music at the University of Ulster at Jordanstown where he gained a BMus degree in 2001. He completed a PhD at the University of Huddersfield with Pierre Alexandre Tremblay and Bryn Harrison in 2009. Currently, he is an Honorary Visiting Research Fellow at CeReNeM (Uni of Huddersfield).
His music is concerned with relationships between minimal processes of transformation and proliferation: ideas of recursion, hysteresis, difference, cluster-microtonality, chaos/complexity theory, interactivity. Scott is also an improviser (cello or live electronics), and plays in the pop/alt-folk duo Phantom Dog Beneath the Moon. Recent performances have been given by Sebastian Berweck, Jonathan Sage, Metapraxis Ensemble, Crash Ensemble, Trio Scordatura, and the public attendees at Analogous Projects’ ICMC 2010 event in New York.
