Douglas Moffat explores the relationship between sound and the built landscape. Moffat mixes field recordings, electro-acoustics and landscape architecture to imagine, propose and build spaces built for listening. His recent project, Listening to Las Vegas, explored the sonic environment of the Las Vegas Strip. He has presented works at the Jardin de Métis Festival and the Send + Receive Festival. He has co-tutored workshops for the Architectural Association in London. He and frequent collaborator Steve Bates were recently awarded the competition for OKTA, the first public sound installation for the City of Toronto to open in 2014. He lives in Montréal, Quebec.
