Kevin Hay

Lecturer
Byron Bay
"My freedom thus consists in my moving about within the narrow frame that I have assigned to myself for each one of my undertakings. I shall go even further: my freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly I limit my field of action and the more I surround myself with obstacles. Whatever diminishes constraint diminishes strength. The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees oneself of the claims that shackle the spirit."
Igor Stravinsky, Poetics of Music

Bio

Kevin Hay is a lecturer at SAE Byron Bay.

“I make noises. I record sounds. I make software. If you need inspiration go outside, close your eyes, and open your ears.”

Kevin has been working with audio since he took apart his first cassette 4-track portastudio at about age 12 since then he has played in bands, exhibited sound art in galleries, recorded all over the place, hand-rolled software exploring procedural audio principles, and almost everything in between.

He’s been lucky to work with plug-in developers, sample pack providers and has been on many beta-testing teams. These days he’s in love with ambience and location recording and working with modular synthesis environments. The only rule he sticks to is “Sound is > no Sound”.
