Residence: Calgary, Canada
David Eagle composes chamber, orchestral and electroacoustic music, and in recent years, has explored computer applications in composition, improvisation, multimedia and sound spatialization. His latest kinetic music compositions use the movement of sound to fundamentally transform and deepen the listening experience. An Associate Professor at the University of Calgary, he teaches theory and composition and is Director of the Electroacoustic Music Studio.
In Ensemble Resonance, he performs the aXiO, a new digital instrument designed to allow greater expression in interactive electroacoustic music. David Eagle has also been composer/performer-in-residence with Toronto’s New Adventures in Sound Art at the summer Sound Travels Festivals on Toronto Island and performed MIX.01 International Festival for Electronic Music, Dansk Institut for Elektroakustisk Musik in Aarhus Denmark and at Musica Scienza 2001, Centro Ricerche Musicali in Rome.
Eagle’s work can be heard on New Concert Discs, Clef, UNICAL and isodart recording labels.
