Diana Meckley (Brooklyn, NY) is a composer, writer/editor, arts administrator, and researcher whose work over two decades reflects her interest in the interfaces between art, science, technology, and the humanities. In the past six years, her work and research has focused on the nature of cross-disciplinary collaboration; the evolution of art practice and content in a continually changing technological/socioeconomic environment; the artist as researcher; and the impact of science on culture and the artistic response to that in the public realm. She has participated in and helped conceptualize a number of conferences and symposia focusing on art/science, emergent art forms, and interdisciplinary collaboration and has sat on a number of panels that award grants or residencies to artists working with new technologies. Most recently she was invited to be a proposal evaluator for the Creative Capital Foundation for their 2002-2003 Emerging Art Forms grant cycle.
Meckley's music has been performed or broadcast in the U.S., Canada and Europe and she has appeared both as a soloist and with her own ensembles. Venues have included Merkin Concert Hall, the Kitchen, Roulette, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New Music America (Montreal); and West German Radio (WDR, Cologne). Her compositions range from those for electronically-altered voice to acoustic and computer-edited brass to string quartet.
