Haroon Mirza

Harron Mirza (b.1977, London) lives and works inn London. He studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design, and at Goldsmiths, University of London. Mirza combines a variety of readymade and time-based material to create audio compositions which are often realised as site-specific installations. In doing so, Mirza complicates the distinctions between noise, sound and music, and alters the function and meaning of everyday objects and socio-cultural constructs.
