Composer, Performer, Internet artist with an extensive background in experimental electronic composition and the performing and digital arts. He has a strong interest in public communications, with many years' experience working on public access computer network projects in Australia, Southeast Asia and Indochina.
In recent years Andrew Garton has merged his Internet activities with his interest in computer-based music systems and has been commissioned to create numerous networked sound pieces and installations, both streaming and generative compositions.
Garton is co-founder of the Web production house, Toy Satellite, principal artist of Secession Records, and a director of Community Communications Online (c2o), a member of the UN-affiliated Association for Progressive Communications.
Recent work explores the reclamation of public space via generative sound-scapes and the Internet as theatre of suspended space.
