Haroon Mirza


Haroon Mirza (b. 1977) was born in London, United Kingdom, where he lives and works. He has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound and light waves, and electric current. He describes his role as a composer who manipulates electricity, working with the invisible and volatile phenomenon to make it dance to different tunes while calling on instruments as varied as household electronics, vinyl, turntables, LEDs, furniture, video footage and existing artworks. His process is left exposed where sounds occupy space in an unruly way, testing codes of conduct and charging the atmosphere.
