UC San Diego's Department of Music

June 29, 2007

  Underscoring its interdisciplinary interest in technology and the arts, a high-tech research institute at the University of California, San Diego has selected a Pulitzer Prize winner to be its first Composer in Residence. The UCSD Division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) appointed Roger Reynolds to the new position for an initial two-year term, effective July 1. He is a professor in the UCSD Department of Music, where he has taught for nearly 40 years. Funding for the new position comes from Calit2, the Department of Music, and the Division of Arts and Humanities. "Roger has produced works that are so diverse and interdisciplinary that they have redefined what it means to be a composer," said Ramesh Rao, director of Calit2 at UC San Diego. "He is an experimentalist who will have the freedom to experiment with Calit2 technologies and facilities. We anticipate that he will bring a fresh intellectual and cultural dimension to Calit2 while exciting engineers and scientists about the potential for developing new hardware and software to expand musical capabilities."
