BIO

From Salem, OR, Sean Russell Hallowell is a musician and composer living in San Francisco, CA. The resonating devices through which his music has occasionally sounded have been remarked as sniff-worthy (his cat). His compositions have been otherwise instantiated at such events as ElectroAcoustic MiniFest at Washington State University, the Charlotte New Music Festival, the annual meeting of the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States, and the First Annual Florida International Toy Piano Festival, as well as showcased by such entities as the University of Vienna Faculty of Physics and Vox Novus.

He holds degrees in music from Brown University (AB) in Providence, RI, and Columbia University (PhD) in New York City, NY, where he wrote a dissertation on the metaphysical dimensions of compositional tradition in Medieval Europe. He has studied music theory with Kepler, Husserl, and Bergson; his composition instructors of note include Purcell, Ockeghem, and Pythagoras.

During the 2016-2017 academic year he served as Lecturer in the Department of Music at the University of California, Berkeley, and in the fall of 2017 he began a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University.
