Bret Battey (UK)

Bret Battey (b. 1967) creates electronic, acoustic, and multimedia concert works and installations, synthesizing diverse experience in music composition, computer programming and graphic design. A major focus in his work has been the crafting of integrated sound and image compositions. He pursues research in areas related to generative techniques, digital signal processing, image and sound relationship, Indian classical music, and expressive synthesis — laced with a overarching fascination with feedback processes and emergent behavior. He often frames his artistic work as a way of evoking experiential analogs to distinctive ways, philosophically, of being in the world.

He has been a Fulbright Fellow to India and a MacDowell Colony Fellow and has received recognitions and prizes from Austria's Prix Ars Electronica, France's Bourges Concours International de Musique Electroacoustique, Spain's Punto y Raya Festival, Abstracta Cinema of Rome, Amsterdam Film eXperience, and the Red Stick International Animation Festival for his sound and image compositions.

Battey completed his masters and doctoral studies in Music Composition at the University of Washington and his Bachelors of Music in Electronic and Computer Music at Oberlin Conservatory. He also served as a Research Associate for the University of Washington's Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media. He is a Senior Lecturer with the Music, Technology, and Innovation Research Centre at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
