Eric Lyon – Composer


I am a research composer focused on articulated noise, computer chamber music, and spatial orchestration. My book on designing audio objects is published by A-R Editions. I am guest editor for a Computer Music Journal issue on computer music for high-density loudspeaker arrays. I have worked in Asia, the United Kingdom, and the US, where I am currently employed by Virginia Tech. More specifically, I am a professor at the School of Performing Arts, and a faculty fellow at ICAT. In 2018 I was on leave as a Guggenheim Fellow, researching immersive computer music with live performers. Currently, I’m sheltering-in-place, and working on binaural music.
