Alex Lough is a composer, performer, and multimedia sound artist. His work focuses on implementing experimental technology in order to discover new performance contexts with particular attention given to the body and the physicality of sound. Architecture and space play an important role in his music as well, especially in his work with the emerging art form of performance-installation and his research with transducer technology. He explores the use of feedback and resonance to sonically activate materials, instruments, and spaces.  He is currently a PhD student at UC Irvine in the new Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology program. Alex earned his B.A. in Music from Wesleyan University and his M.M. in Music Technology from Florida International University. He has studied with Alvin Lucier, Paula Matthusen, Jacob Sudol, Juraj Kojs, Nicole Mitchell, Lukas Ligeti, and Chris Dobrian.
