Brief Biography ---- Chronology --------- Major Performances

Scot Gresham-Lancaster (b. Redwood City, CA USA 1954) is a composer, performer, instrument builder and educator with over three decades of professional experience. Since Fall of 2012 a professor of sound art with ATEC at the Univ. of Texas at Dallas, his most recent research has been on the boundary between science and art specifically developing advanced techniques in sonification. He is also dedicated to research and performance using the expanding capabilities of computer networks to create new environments for musical and cross discipline expression. As a member of the HUB, he is one of the early pioneers of "computer network" music which uses the behavior of interconnected music machines to create innovative ways for performers and computers to interact. He has recently performed in a series of "co-located" performances collaborating in real time with live and distant dancers, video artists and musicians in network based performances. For over two decades, he has worked with multimedia prototyping and user interface theory and its relationship to new markets as an independent consultant and at Interval Research, SEGA-USA, and Muse Comunications.
