Angus Tarnawsky is an artist and musician who investigates perceptions of sound and space through installation and performance. Drawing from his experience as a drummer and audio engineer, he uses repetition, motion and transmission to engage with site-specific concerns of temporality and materiality. A frequent collaborator, he works alongside a variety of artists, most notably through his curatorial project ICM, where he releases lathe-cut records and organizes concerts. Originally from Tasmania, Australia, he lives and works in Toronto.
