Andrew Raffo Dewar 

Andrew Raffo Dewar, Ph.D. (b.1975 Rosario, Argentina) is a composer, soprano saxophonist, electronic musician, and ethnomusicologist whose music spans the spectrum of through-composed chamber music, aleatoric composition, electroacoustic music, and open improvisation. He studied with experimentalist composer/performers Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Alvin Lucier, and Bill Dixon, and has performed regularly in Braxton’s ensembles since 2005.

Recent publications include original music for his ensembles in San Francisco, New York City, and Hamburg, music for film, compositions incorporating ethnographic interviews, biofeedback, installations or performances utilizing 3D spatial audio, ethnographic writing on 1970s intermedia art in Argentina during a military dictatorship, 1960s electronic music collective the Sonic Arts Union, and philosophical issues of ontology in jazz performance and music technologies. Recordings of Dewar as a composer and performer are available on over two dozen albums published by record labels throughout the United States and Europe.

Dewar has received grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America, NewMusicUSA, ASCAP, the Getty Foundation, Arts International, Meet The Composer, The San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Fulbright Scholars Program.

Colin develops his own video and audio software to probe the relations between digital, natural, and human systems. His open source creative coding frameworks are used by artists, musicians, researchers, and commercial software companies worldwide. Colin’s music has been performed by Arraymusic, the neither/nor collective, the Draperies, and his own ensembles, Lions and Fleischmop.
