Mike McInerney works with interactive technology, computer-generated sounds and live processing to create new music for Japanese shakuhachi flute, and other instruments.
As a scholar, he writes about challenges in the Western tradition of notation and interpretation, the shakuhachi as an optimal interface with new technology, and the works and ethos of the Viennese visionary composer, Anestis Logothetis (1921 – 1994).
Mike teaches composition and music aesthetics in the school of humanities and performing arts at Plymouth University. His PhD is from Dartington College of Arts, UK, where he studied under the composer Frank Denyer.
