Music

About

Carey Campbell is an electroacoustic music performer, composer, and improviser. His works tend to explore themes of deformation, decay, and destruction as a way of appreciating the accumulation and erosion of layers which make up our physical and psychological present. Carey’s works and improvisations have been heard at the Australasian Computer Music Festival, the Vu Symposium, the Osaka Audio Rocket Festival, SEAMUS, and the New Music Gathering. Carey has composed music for theatre and dance productions at Weber State University, where he is a Professor of Music, and has recently collaborated with visual artists and projectionists. He is originally from Virginia and received a PhD in Musicology from the University of Minnesota.
