Kenneth Newby

Kenneth Newby is the creator of compositions of media performance, electro-acoustic and acoustic music; interactive computer systems for live performance and installation; software tools for composition of music and animation, new composition for Javanese and Balinese gamelan ensembles; interdisciplinary collaborations with composers and artists in various disciplines (film, video, dance, theatre, poetry, shadow play) and participation in improvisational ensembles.

His recent compositional work has brought him back to his classical roots and the creation of a personal theory of music encoded in his Flicker Computer Assisted Composition system.
