Douglas McCausland

Douglas McCausland is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music currently based out of the Bay Area in California, USA. Fascinated with new sonic territories and processes for creating music, his work engages with the extremes of sound and the digital medium; ultimately, he strives to create visceral music which balances creative exploration with technical nuance. Compositionally, he has focused in recent years almost exclusively on the creation of electronic music for interactive systems and performers, fixed-media, and for hardware-hacked ‘instruments’ and real-time processing.
