Robert Hamilton - Composer Composer Robert Hamilton (b.1973) 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. He has been the recipient of the Johns Hopkins Technology Fellowship, First Prize Winner of the Peabody Prix d'Ete competition, two Peabody Career Development Awards and two ASCAPPlus awards.

His compositions and published writings have been presented most recently at the MiTo (Torino-Milano) Festival (2010, 2009), the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005), the Audio Engineering Society, newStage:CCRMA Festival, SEAMUS 2007 (Ames), NIME 2006 (Paris), the CCRMA Concert Series, Sound in Media Workshop (Copenhagen), the SPARK Festival, 3rd Practice Festival, ISMIR 2003, the Dartmouth Electric Rainbow Coalition Festival and the Smithsonian Institute.

Mr. Hamilton is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Computer-based Music Theory and Acoustics at Stanford University's CCRMA working with Chris Chafe. His research interests include novel platforms for electroacoustic composition and performance, the definition and implementation of flexible parameter-spaces for interactive musical systems, and systems for real-time musical data-exchange, translation and notation display.
