Levy Lorenzo

Filipino-American Levy I. Lorenzo works at the intersection of music, art, and technology.  On an international scale, his body of work spans custom electronics design, sound engineering, instrument building, installation art, improvisation, and classical percussion.  With a primary focus on inventing new instruments, Levy prototypes, composes, and performs new electronic music.  As an electronic art consultant, Levy designs interactive electronics ranging from small sculptures to large-scale public art installations with artists such as Alvin Lucier and Leo Villareal.  As a percussionist, he co-founded the experimental theater/electronics duo Radical 2 with Dennis Sullivan and is a member of House Special, an electro-acoustic improvising quintet with Peter Evans.  As a sound engineer, he specializes in the realization and performance of complete electro-acoustic concerts with non-traditional configurations.  A core member of acclaimed the International Contemporary Ensemble, he fulfills multiple roles as live sound engineer, electronic musician, and percussionist.

Levy earned degrees as Master of Electrical & Computer Engineering from Cornell University, and Doctor of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University.  He has given numerous guest lectures on electronic musical instrument design and teaches Emerging Media at CUNY College of Technology.
