Biography

After graduating from Sussex University reading 20th Century Music, Mick embarked on a career of performance and production focusing on improvisation and sampling, which resulted in getting signed and making a number of commercial releases. 

 

This led to work for TV and Film and Mick is currently published by Warner Chappell and Sony, with compositions being used globally. He began teaching Production, Experimental System Design, Composition and Cultural Studies at Northbrook College and is currently the Curriculum Leader for the Music Department. 

 

As part of his CPD, Mick took a Master’s Degree in Studio Composition and Music for Film and Media at Sussex University, graduating with distinction.  He currently focuses on using MaxMSP/Jitter and the Ableton platform, programming specifically the creation of electronic music, including generative music that features interaction between live performance, algorithm and interface.
