Rhoades, Michael 

Michael Rhoades



Michael Rhoades is a multi-oriented artist whose works include computer music, visual music, computer art, installations, and paintings. His music is composed from a contemporary musique concréte perspective augmented by various score synthesis techniques. He elicits musical events from generative algorithms and an ever-expanding Csound sample playback instrument. Numerical representations of aural quanta are mixed and blended into formal elements using varied catalysts such as tendency masks, mathematical equations, sonifications, cellular automata, score based sampling and others in an unending quest for emergent quanta. Main compositional tools include Csound, Cmask, Mathematica, Excel, MetaSynth, AbSynth, Sonar and Sound Forge. Michael’s music is a collection of musical events that could not be produced in a live performance. They are much too complex. He meticulously produces his work and then publishes it on CDs, DVDs and as MP3s so his performances can be heard anywhere. He also presents his work in the concert hall providing a way to listen to pre-recorded musical material much the same as going to the cinema. He recently published his 21st CD/DVD titled Amber Orbs in a White Infinity. Michael's works have been presented worldwide in concerts, festivals and used in pedagogical applications. He has presented many lectures throughout the US and Canada.
