Siren Audio's software is developed by Michael Sweeton. He studied Music Technology at the University of Huddersfield where he first used the graphical programming environment Max/MSP. After spending a placement year at IRCAM in Paris, he finished his degree and began an MA in research, developing audio applications in Max. The main aim of that research was to shorten the time it takes to generate specific sounds and new musical ideas.
In 2011 he launched the Lorelei suite which comprised three different sample based applications primarily developed from his MA studies. The suite received awards for innovation and performance in Computer Music Magazine and received a favourable review in Sound on Sound.
Aside from Siren Audio, he makes music under the alias machinesleet.
