Music for Buildings 95bpm

Carey Campbell is Professor of Music at Weber State University, where he teaches courses in music history.

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 composing the score for Weber State's production of Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice
