Jamie Hamilton, composer

Jamie is a composer, performer and curator. He combines sound, multimedia, technology, words and acoustic phenomena to explore ways in which sound acts as a measuring device, which can heighten aspects of our perception. His work uses disparate elements to tell abstract stories about technology and belief. This often revolves around collaborative devising processes, in which sound acts as an organising device integrating other practitioners. His music has been broadcast on BBC1, BBC2, BBC4 and BBC Radio 3, amongst others. Commissions include Eklekto Percussion, Tate Britain, The Place (LSCD), London Contemporary Music Festival, The City of London, the Hong Kong Academy of the Performing Arts (HKAPA) and the National Dance Company of Mexico.
