Juan Pampin is Associate Professor of Music Composition at University of Washington and founding faculty member of the Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) for which he currently serves as Director. He received an MA in Composition from Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon, France and a DMA in Composition from Stanford University, where he studied with composer Jonathan Harvey.
Juan Pampin's work explores the concepts of site, memory, and materiality using algorithmic strategies to produce aural phenomena. His sound installations consist of site-specific and immersive sonic environments, with locations ranging from bathrooms to urban public spaces, and have been exhibited at the Henry Art Gallery, Ssamzie Space (Seoul) and Fase 6.0 (Buenos Aires) among other international venues and festivals. His music compositions, including pieces for instrumental, digital, and mixed media, have been performed around the world by world-class soloists and ensembles. His work "On Space" –for percussion sextet and 3D electronic sounds– has been recently released on CD as part of Les Percussions de Strasbourg 50th anniversary historical edition box published by Universal France.
