Juan Pampin, "Entanglement"

JUAN PAMPIN is an Argentine composer and sound artist who lives and works in Seattle. He is Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) at University of Washington. Pampin received a DMA in Composition from Stanford University and an MA in Composition from Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique (CNSM) de Lyon, France. His works explore the concepts of site, memory, and materiality using algorithmic strategies to produce aural phenomena. Pampin considers listening an active process of self reflexion, his sound installations consist of site-specific and interactive sonic environments, with locations ranging from bathrooms to urban public spaces. Pampin's music compositions, including works for instrumental, digital, and mixed media, have been performed around the world by world-class soloists and ensembles. His work "On Space" - for percussion sextet and 3D electronic sounds - has been recently released on CD as part of Les Percussions de Strasbourg 50th anniversary historical edition box. As a researcher, Pampin has developed new techniques for sound processing and spatialization, his recently patented Moving Ultra-Sound Technology (MUST) will be installed publicly for the first time as part of the Sanctum project.
