Alex Mackay is a musician from Scotland, working internationally. Alex makes music from experimental approaches to electronic music, contemporary composition and instrumental performance; utilising synthesis, manipulated acoustic instrumentation and experimental electric guitar techniques to create immersive
sonic environments that fuse a minimalist focus with a metallic intensity. Alex's debut album Targazer was released by Forwind
in 2020. 

Alex has been a touring member of Mogwai since 2016, playing electric guitar and keyboards. Alex studied composition and
music production at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and University of York, and lectures in music and sound recording
at the University of York.

Current research focuses on integrated approaches to site-specific composition, performance and production, and the
impact of political/socio-economic factors on experimental creative practice.
