I’m John Eacott, a trumpeter, composer and algorithmic composer living in Brixton, London, UK. My recent work focusses on making music performances from live environmental data. ‘Flood Tide’ makes music from the tidal flow of water and ‘Hour Angle’ makes music from the relative movement of Sun and Earth. Recently I have written music for the RSC production Taming of the Shrew.

Before this work I played trumpet and composed for groups like Loose Tubes, Test Dept and composed scores for TV, film and theatre. I have a PhD in computer music and lecture in Popular Music at Middlesex University and in Sound Art at London College of Communication.

My aim for this blog is to record some of the thinking and work that I do in a way that isn’t too formal. Apologies if the writing isn’t always complete. I hope it is interesting for some anyway.
