Who

Iain is a Glaswegian 'composersuperimposerperformerclown'.  He started out in a maximalist prog band before having his head turned by improvisation, Samuel Beckett, Keiji Haino, John Moran, Morton Feldman and Fluxus.  Maybe he’s come to the valid conclusion that in an improvisation it’s sometimes best not to do anything.

Why

Do you ever wonder about the social relations of consumption? About the relationship between free-market ideology and self-expression?  Or about the self as a site for the circulation of ideology?
