Ron Herrema

Ron Herrema is a composer, digital media artist, and app developer. In recent years he has: developed two iPhone app/artworks; co-produced the winning entry at The Tate Modern's art hackathon; performed audiovisual free improv; composed for film; and created an interactive installation for the Tate Britain. He has also been especially interested in integrating contemplative practices with technology through creativity.

He composes both acoustic and electroacoustic music, as well as both still and moving image. He has a particular (but not exclusive) affinity for algorithmic techniques in both realms. Currently residing in Bath, England, he is a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan and received his PhD in composition from Michigan State University. He worked as a full-time lecturer at Northeastern University from 2001-2004 and at De Montfort University from 2004-2011. For the past four years he has been a Senior Lecturer in Creative Computing at Bath Spa university. In 2008 he began his study of Deep Listening practice with Pauline Oliveros and continues to look for ways to flow musically into, with, and through the world.
