Greg Dixon works as Assistant Professor of Music and Sound Design at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, WA, where he teaches courses in sound design and music composition. His compositional research focuses upon interactive music systems for video games, acoustic instruments, sensor technologies, and human interface devices. He has worked for more than a dozen years as a professional sound engineer, which has greatly influenced his strategies for composing electronic music in the studio. Greg’s electroacoustic compositions often make use of his own personal field recordings exploring a wide variety of source material, acoustic spaces, social and cultural artifacts, and transduction methodologies.
He holds a Ph.D. in composition with a specialization in computer music from the University of North Texas, where he worked as a composition teaching fellow, recording engineer, and technical assistant for CEMI. His composition instructors include Jon Christopher Nelson, Cindy McTee, Andrew May, David Bithell, Michael Pounds, Jody Nagel, Keith Kothman, and Cleve Scott.
His music has been released on labels including Kohlenstoff Records, SEAMUS, Irritable Hedgehog, New Adventures in Sound Art, Vox Novus, Pawlacz Perski, winds measure, Flannelgraph Records, and on his own label, noxious fumes.
