I’m Stuart Buchanan and I’m a creative digital producer, music curator and podcaster.

I was born and raised in Scotland; my family lived on and near the Buchanan Clan lands by Loch Lomond. I now live in the Blue Mountains, in an area first occupied by the Oryang-Ora people of the Darug tribe.

I work as Head of Digital Programming for Sydney Opera House and run the experimental music label New Weird Australia and its companion podcast.

I’ve worked for and with companies such as ABC, Art Gallery of NSW, AFTRS, Biennale of Sydney, Creative Sydney, Disney, Edinburgh Fringe, The Guardian, MONA, Museum of Contemporary Art, Mute Records, Royal Court Theatre, SBS and Underbelly Arts, and co-founded the digital creative agency The Nest.

As a broadcaster, I have presented programs on ABC’s Double J, FBi Radio and UK station Resonance FM. I’m currently a Board Member of FBi Radio and was previously Chair of Underbelly Arts Festival.

Although Scottish, I’m not the Scottish visual artist Stuart Buchanan, nor have I written books about lighthouses, nor was I a voice actor for Disney. But those Stuart Buchanans are most likely great.
