Composer and researcher Rob Hamilton is actively engaged in the composition of contemporary electroacoustic musics as well as the development of interactive musical systems for performance and composition. Mr. Hamilton holds degrees from Stanford University, Dartmouth College, and the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University with additional studies at Le Centre de Création Musicale de Iannis Xenakis (CCMIX) and L'Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris with the EAMA.
Dr. Hamilton succesfully completed his Ph.D. in Computer-based Music Theory and Acoustics at Stanford University's CCRMA in June, 2014. His doctoral dissertation entitled "Perceptually Coherent Mapping Schemata for Virtual Space and Musical Method" can be found in the Stanford Library at the following permanent URL: http://purl.stanford.edu/ts761kv5081
His research interests include novel platforms for electroacoustic composition and performance, procedural audio and music systems for gaming and interactive media, the definition and implementation of flexible parameter-spaces for interactive musical systems, and systems for real-time musical data-exchange, translation and notation display.
