Jason Palamara is a composer, improviser, performer and musical technologist. He specializes in composing music for dance, film, theater and in developing new music technologies. He was a founder of LOUi (the Laptop Orchestra at the University of Iowa) and recently constructed and debuted the world's first laptop orchestra made of 100% recycled machines, #trashchestra. Since 2009, he has been developing his own generative improvisation software, HIDI (Human Instrument Digital Interface). jason's musical partnership with HIDI has gone far beyond the standard human-using-tool model and progressed into a full cyborgian synthesis of man and machine. He has degrees from Butler University, The University of Louisville and The University of Iowa, where he continues to work closely with dancers and choreographers such as Jennifer Kayle and Charlotte Adams. In 2015, his music saw performances in New York, Wyoming, California, Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, and at the International Computer Music Conference in Denton, Texas. His recently released full length album ♩ = (music for dance) is available for pay-what-you-want download at Bandcamp.com. You can find more links to his music and events at jasonpalamara.com.
