mike barber is an experimental composer/artist based in toronto, canada. for over 20 years he has been recording and performing both as a solo artist and as a collaborationist in experimental and avant-garde formations in cities such as toronto, montreal, philadelphia, and new york city. in addition to live performance, he has also composed and performed musical scores to a number of independent documentaries and short films.

a self-described "sonic mad scientist", barber specializes in using indeterminacy, chance operations, and improvisation with a mixed palette of electronic sources, organic instruments, and field recordings to create ambient soundscapes, minimalist drones, and other pieces that find categorization problematic.

his latest release, Duets for Saw and Deviated Septum is now available on iTunes, spotify, and bandcamp
