Iain Chambers is a composer and producer whose music often deploys field recordings and location sounds as musical material. His work is heard live in concerts, radio, sound installations and multimedia.
Iain’s feature-length symphonies of industrial sounds have been commissioned by WDR Cologne and ABC Australia. He staged the first concerts ever to be given in Tower Bridge’s Bascule Chambers in 2015, turning Tower Bridge into a huge musical instrument. The concerts have become an established annual event within London’s greatest hidden space.

LRC give ‘period’ performances of electronic work by 20th century composers, alongside their own new material composed for an instrumentarium of obsolete Cold War era technology.
