Sylvia Pengilly has always been fascinated by the correlation between what the ear hears and what the eye sees. Because of this, many of her works integrate both musical and visual elements. Mathematics and physics, including Chaos Theory, Quantum Mechanics, and Superstrings, are of particular interest and frequently provide the basis for her works. These have been presented both nationally and worldwide at several festivals, including many SEAMUS National Conferences, the Medi@terra festival, ICMC, the “Not Still Art” Festival, the “Visual Music Marathon,” "MUSLAB," and she recently had a screening of "Maze" at the Downtown Film Festival in Los Angeles. She was recently awarded first prize in the "Fresh Minds" festival. She was formerly professor of theory and composition in the College of Music at Loyola University, New Orleans, where she also founded and directed the electronic music composition studio. She is now "retired" and presently lives in Atascadero, California.
Composing from a contemporary Musique Concrète perspective augmented by various score synthesis techniques, Michael Rhoades elicits musical events from generative algorithms and an ever-expanding Csound sample playback instrument. Numerical representations of aural quanta are mixed and blended into formal elements via a variety of catalysts such as tendency masks, mathematical equations, sonifications, cellular automata, score based sampling and other paradigms in an unbending quest for emergent quanta. Michael is honored to have served as a SEAMUS board member and hosted SEAMUS 2009. He curated the monthly Sweetwater Electroacoustic Music Concert Series and numerous other concerts, exhibits and installations. Michael is currently a Visual Arts student at Virginia Tech in SOVA program. He is also conducting ongoing personal research in the areas of 3D Spatialization, Algorithmic Composition and Super Computing.
