Colin Muir Dorward

Colin Muir Dorward is a musician and painter living in Canada. He began producing as a teenager, spurred on by his brother’s burgeoning interest in computerized music technology. A brief education in programming and electronics gave Colin a formal background that was missing without music training. Producing since the 90s, he has thus drawn broadly from dancemusic, IDM, ambient. His compositions tend toward dense arrangements, perhaps influenced by his paintings, which are similarly complex. Colin has exhibited paintings across Canada, and is presently a PhD candidate in studio/visual art, where he paints large-format oils, and studies medieval painting. Next to his painting studio, Colin maintains a soldering lab, where he is developing a unique modular synthesizer format optimized for the DIY enthusiast.
