ICCaT Researcher: Paul Turowski

Paul Turowski is a composer, performer, and Lecturer in Music for Digital Games at the University of Liverpool. His research examines intersections of game design/gameplay and musical composition/performance. This includes the employment of digital games as interactive musical scores as well as the creation of video games that afford musical authorship to the player. (For more details, see his doctoral dissertation, "Digital Game as Musical Notation") His creative work has been performed by ensembles such as Dither, Ekmeles, and Voxare; has been presented at events such as the annual conference of the Society of Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States, the Kyma International Sound Symposium and the conference on Technologies of Notation and Representation; and has been featured on such websites as Cycling74.com and animatednotation.com. He has also given talks on game music at events like the North American Conference on Video Game Music. Paul has served as programmer and technical consultant on several collaborative projects—most recently, Judith Shatin's Black Moon for orchestra and conductor-controlled electronics, which was commissioned by Carnegie Hall and the American Composers Orchestra. He enjoys improvising on various instruments and currently performs with the Merseyside Improvisers' Orchestra. http://www.paulturowski.com, https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/music/staff/paul-turowski
