Join us Friday, November 2 at 3:30pm for Paul Koonce's colloquium in Old Cabell 107.
Paul Koonce studied composition at the University of Illinois, and the University of California, San Diego where he received the Ph.D. in Music. Previous positions include Moorhead State University and Princeton University.
His music focuses upon issues of representation and perception in electroacoustic sound. As a software developer, he has explored the invention of computer technologies for the manipulation of sound and timbre, developing tools for exploring the parallels between musical and environmental sound phenomena.
