Michael Edwards is a composer, performer, and software developer. He is the author of the slippery chicken algorithmic composition package. His compositional interests lie mainly in the development of structures for hybrid electro-instrumental pieces through the integration of algorithmically produced scored materials with similarly generated computer-processed sound. He is also active as an improvisor on laptop, saxophones, and MIDI wind controller, performing for instance at the 2008 Montreaux Jazz Festival.
Michael's compositions have been played worldwide at many international festivals, including the Darmstadt Ferienkurse, the International Computer Music Conference (Banff, Havana, Ljubljana), the Zagreb Biennale, the Seoul International Computer Music Festival, etc., and by leading ensembles/performers such as Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Aventure, Ensemble Intercontemporain, IRCAM, Experimentalstudio Freiburg, Marcus Weiss, Sarah Nicolls, Rei Nakamura, and Garth Knox.
Michael studied composition at Bristol University with Adrian Beaumont (BA, MMus) and privately with Gwyn Pritchard. In 1991 he moved to the US for further studies in computer music with John Chowning at CCRMA, Stanford University (MA, Doctor of Musical Arts). Whilst studying there he also worked at IRCAM, Paris, with a residence grant at Cité des Arts. During 1996-7 he was a consultant software engineer in Silicon Valley and developed a Document Recognition System used in several US hospitals. In 1997 Michael was appointed Lecturer in Music Theory at Stanford but later that year moved to Salzburg, Austria. He was Guest Professor at the Universität Mozarteum until 2002, when he came to the University of Edinburgh.

PechaKucha's New Haven
Connecticut's local entertainment portal CT.com recently published a recap of PKN New Haven's Vol. 15 (check out their event page for some great photos), and looks forward to their Vol. 16 -- coming up this Wednesday, April 17. Here's a snippet from the article: On a Wednesday night, Orange Street's Bentara is overflowing with people.

Others sit in rows of chairs arrayed in front of a projector screen that hangs on a high brick wall. But most people are talking in tight clusters, some pushed up against a small bar, and as more patrons trickle in it's becoming clear that tonight's event will be standing-room only...
