juan pampin

Born in 1967, Pampin studied with Denis Lorrain and Philippe Manoury at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon, then at Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) supervised by the British composer Jonathan Harvey. During this period Harvey acted as both a mentor and collaborator. Juan’s ‘Analysis, Transformation, Synthesis’ (ATS) spectral modelling software was developed with Julius Smith’s guidance. An invitation from Richard Karpen brought a move from Stanford to Seattle in 1999. Juan became part of a new research centre, bringing together arts and technology at UW, the Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) which he has been directing since 2011. more info
