Carey Campbell is Professor of Music at Weber State University, where he teaches courses in music history and music in culture. Carey is Artistic Advisor and Host for NEXT Ensemble, a non-profit chamber music collective dedicated to  transforming the concert experience.

Carey’s  electronic compositions and improvisations tend to explore notions of decay, deformation, and delirium. Representative works include PBD19  for fixed-media electronics, Stratum for live and fixed-media electronics, and Something Old, Something New  for live electronics, flute, and dancers. He frequently collaborates with theatre and dance productions, most recently the fully improvised work The Birthday of Folly (for live electronics, dancer, and author).
