Richard Graham, Ph.D. is a musician, former professor and CEO of audio technology company, Delta Sound Labs.
Graham’s academic research is centered around computer-assisted music composition and instrumental performance. He developed the first iteration of his live performance system for multichannel guitar as an artist-in-residence at STEIM in 2010. His writing on performance systems design and electroacoustic theory has been published by New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME), Electroacoustic Music Studies (EMS) Network, Irish Sound, Science, and Technology Association (ISSTA), Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium (TIES), AES International Conference on Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality (AVAR) and Korean Electro-Acoustic Music Society Annual Conference (KEAMSAC). He has performed and presented music and art projects at festivals and conferences around the world including Moogfest, Celtronic and the International Symposium on Electronic Art.
Compositions from Graham’s 2012 album, “Nascent,” were performed at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF), the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) and the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS) conference. In late 2017, Graham formed the audio technology company, Delta Sound Labs, with messrs, Edwin Park and John Harding. The company has brought a series of products to market, and completed an artist residency at the Technicolor Experience Center.
At Loop, Ricky will lead a hands-on workshop on Audio Circuits, where attendees can build their own audio circuits and custom guitar-based instruments. He’ll also lead a DIY circuit-bending project in the Maker Zone, along with LA-based synth builder Naomi Mitchell.
