Bio Text for Programs:
Eoin Callery is an Irish artist and researcher. He holds a BMus from University College Cork (2008), MA from Wesleyan University (2010), and completed his DMA at Stanford University (2016). From 2017-2019 he was a lecturer at CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics) at Stanford University. He is currently a lecturer and the course director for the Composition and Creative Music Practice MA in The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick. His art and research focus on electro-acoustic systems relating to chamber music, performance space augmentation, and sound installation. This often involves exploring acoustic phenomena – especially feedback derived from both real and virtual systems – in live situations, and embedding sounds or gestures into layers of automated live electronic processes. Information about his work and recent performances can be found at eoincallerysound.com.
I was born in Dublin Ireland.
Among other things-
I write small ensemble and electroacoustic pieces, create interactive sound and video performances/situations/installations, I have written and collaborated in the production of sound and music for theater, a little radio, and occasional fit in some performances on various instruments augmented with live electronics. I teach in The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick and was previously a lecturer at CCRMA (Stanford University) from 2017-2019. I collaborate with various research groups on a variety of sound/music/audio topics, mostly connected with Virtual Acoustics.
This site has links to audio and video documentation of some of my pieces. I have a large amount of documentation still to be edited and posted… this will happen when I run out of new ideas for pieces… It also contains links to several research papers I have written or assisted with.
I went to University College Cork Ireland between 2004-2008 (BMus), Wesleyan University in Connecticut until 2010 (MA), and I then completed my DMA at Stanford University in 2016. These schools made me write lots of music so that I might put additional letters before and/or after my name. After so many years of writing this music it’s hard to stop … So this site functions as a repository of items documenting this ongoing obsession… but it’s not the real thing… go see live music, art and performance, but turn your phone/camera off. Why? Because there’s always somebody there whose job it is to document a performance so you don’t have to… plus people are bigger and more interesting when not viewed through your phone/camera screen.
