I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology. Previously I was a Visiting Professor at Southern Methodist University and Lecturer at Yale. My current work involves research is at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, music theory, and programming languages. I am also a composer and have dabbled in other creative areas in the past, and I have a life-long interest in aquariums, fish, and aquatic invertebrates. This site contains information on various areas of my research, other work, and hobbies.
The Cube Squared (July 2019): algorithmic bossa nova. I had another algorithmic jazz piece in a somewhat different style (“The Cube”) and wondered what would happen if I swapped out the algorithmic instrumentalists.
Hypnotize (April 2019): algorithmic chill jazz using Euterpea/Haskell and a jazz type system and generative framework of mine. Visuals created with Processing.
Snow in March (March 2019): hand made piece featuring two pianos on delays lines synced with multiples of the tempo. Melodies are half newly played notes and half what was heard in the past.
Ugly Purse Dog (February 2019): largely algorithmic bebop generated with models using Euterpea/Haskell. Large sections were arranged in a DAW.
How can I get updates on new pieces and/or research?
There are a few ways:
- SoundCloud if you just want to hear new music I make.
- Subscribe to me on YouTube if you want music visualizations and occasional research-related videos.
- Follow me on Facebook for all of the above and a lot more. If just follow me on Facebook (but don’t friend), then you’ll get updates on new compositions, visualizations, publications, libraries I maintain (Kulitta and Euterpea), and various other work-related projects of mine. If you friend me, you’ll also get other shared things that I find humorous (typically bad music puns) and periodic pictures of things relating to my other hobbies. I do not currently use Twitter or other social media sites.
