Erik Nyström is specialised in electroacoustic music and is currently pursuing an aesthetic interest in spatial texture, and visual and physical experiences in acousmatic listening. He holds a PhD from City University, London (UK), awarded in 2013 for his research entitled Topology of Spatial Texture in the Acousmatic Medium. The work was supervised by Denis Smalley and develops, in both theoretical concepts and composition practice, an approach to spatiotemporal processes and structures in electroacoustic music, especially applicable to multichannel circumspatial compositions. His educational background includes studies in Recording Arts at SAE Institute London (UK), Computer Music Composition at CCMIX (Paris, France), with Gerard Pape, and Electroacoustic Composition (MA, PhD) at City University, London (UK), with Denis Smalley. Erik Nyström lives in London (UK) where he also teaches at SAE Institute London and freelances as sound engineer. His music is frequently performed internationally and has received prizes and mentions, including the Public Prize at the Métamorphoses 2010 competition (Belgium, 2010).
