His research includes more than 35 peer-reviewed publications on interactive music, granular sampling, score following, spectral processing, FFT-based spatial distribution/delay, acoustic instrument parameter mapping, and instrument design. His compositions have received numerous international prizes, and he has written for many internationally acclaimed new music soloists and ensembles.

Chamber Cartel, special guest ensemble

The Chamber Cartel is a group of adventurous musicians located in Atlanta dedicated to propagating New and Experimental music. Chamber Cartel was born out of the idea that contemporary classical and experimental music should have a more substantial presence in the Atlanta music scene. Our first concert season, spanning all of 2012, will feature living composers as well as composers of the last half of the 20th century. Our aim is to perform this music in various settings for those that might not have heard or even known of music of this type existing.

Visiting members of Chamber Cartel are:
Caleb Herron, percussion
Amy O’Dell, piano
