Luke Dahl

Luke Dahl is Assistant Professor of Composition and Computer Technologies in the Music Department at University of Virginia where he teaches classes on music technology, audio signal processing, and music interaction design. His research is primarily situated in the interdisciplinary field of New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) which investigates and explores the intersection of technology and musical practice through the activities of design, musical performance, and empirical research. He is especially interested systems for digitally mediated real-time music collaboration, and in the role of human gesture and movement in music. 

His newest project is a collaboration with new media artist and scholar Mona Kasra, where they are investigating how new recording technologies such as immersive video, spatial audio, and motion capture can be used to document, preserve, and transmit embodied cultural practices of aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory regions of Australia.
