Ron Kuivila

Ron Kuivila (Middletown, CT) composes music and designs sound installations that revolve around the unusual homemade and home modified electronic instruments he designs. He pioneered the use of ultrasound and sound sampling in live performance. More recent pieces have explored compositional algorithms, speech synthesis and high voltage phenomena. His sound installations have worked with the same materials. For example: Radio Arcs, a sound installation commissioned by Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria, includes the coordination of ninety-six stun guns. Kuivila has performed and exhibited throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. He has collaborated with other composers, artists, and choreographers, including Anthony Buxton, Rudi Burckhardt, Merce Cunningham, Hugh Davies, and Susan Foster.
