2018 Conference – Mike Cottle

About the Clinician

Dr. David Michael Cottle has Composition degrees from Utah State University, Brigham Young University, and the University of Illinois with focus on electro-acoustic and computer music. Since the 90s his compositional work has been exclusively algorithmic, generative, and computer assisted systems that are, by design, too complex for human performance.

Publications include Beyond MIDI, MIT Press, 1997; SuperCollider, The Book, MIT Press, 2011; and Computer Music with Examples in SuperCollider and Logic Pro, 2012. Each year he records over 300 art music concerts, sessions and recitals including season contracts with The Utah Symphony, the University of Utah School of Music, Utah Chamber Artists, Cathedral of the Madeleine concert series, Utah Choral Artists, The Gifted School, Naxos, Centaur, SEAMUS (2008), and Performance Today. He is now Lecturer/Associate Professor and director of the experimental music studios at the University of Utah, where he teaches music technology, audio engineering, and computer assisted composition.
