Edmund Campion

Edmund Campion is Professor of Composition and the Co-Director at the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies in the Department of Music. His music explores relationships between sound and space—creations that often involve the careful mixing of acoustic instruments with emerging computer technologies. In 1993, he created the piece Losing Touch at IRCAM (L'Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique) and was subsequently commissioned by IRCAM to produce a large scale work for interactive electronics and midi-grand piano (Natural Selection). 2012 saw the premiere of The Last Internal Combustion Engine, a 20-minute concerto grosso for orchestra, Kronos Quartet, and electronics. Professor Campion is currently working on a commission from the Berkeley Symphony and Cal Performances for premiere in October of 2013.
