Poetical Machines’ director, Adam McCready, has over thirty years experience in composing music, creating sound effects and ambiences and designing sound re-enforcement systems and installations.

When creating sounds for live performance Adam aims to create a sonic landscape for the performers to work in that is as tangible and supportive to their work as any piece of stage scenery, costume, prop or lighting effect.
