David Burraston (aka Dave Noyze & Bryen Telko) is an artist/scientist involved in technology and electronic music/art since the late 1970s. Self taught in the areas of music composition/technology, generative art, chaos and complex systems, he is recognized as a leading practitioner/theorist in the field of generative music, producing both peer reviewed publications and musical compositions. David is a peer-reviewer for Leonardo Journal, Leonardo Music Journal, Computer Music Journal and on the editorial board of Leonardo Transactions. His PhD thesis developed and applied fundamental new concepts, arising out of generative music practice, to a key problem in complex systems.
David runs his own independent analogue/digital research music studio called Noyzelab since 1981. He has performed music/video sets & created sound art installations around the world at a wide variety of events (e.g. Liquid Architecture, Electrofringe, Big Day Out, Floating Land Festival, Wired Open Day). He designs and builds his own synthesizer modules based on his theories of chaos and complex systems science.
He has been featured in many music/art publications (from The Wire Magazine to Realtime). He continues to release his own particular brand of field recordings, generative music and noise experiments on a number of labels such as Important Records, MIT Press, Alku, Cataclyst, Meds, Engraved Glass, Lo Editions, Taiga, Tochnit Aleph, Sevcom Edition, Beta Bodega Coalition, Creativity & Cognition Studios and his own Noyzelab imprint.
He has worked with many diverse collaborators & artists such as Aphex Twin, MIT Media Lab, William Barton, Alan Lamb, Chris Watson, Russell Haswell, Robin Fox, Chris Mann, Dave Phillips and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. He is also part of the team that designs and builds Long Wire installations at The WIRED Lab.
