Damian Catera

Damian Catera is an electro-acoustic composer/guitarist, sound installation creator and media artist. Catera's work reflects interests in sound-based composition/ improvisation, transmission, and socio- political critique. Recently he's been performing improvised “deCompositions” for live electronics, radio, and guitar. Catera's “deCompositional” process consists of an expanded instrument system, which samples and probabilistically processes live sound with algorithms, which he wrote in the MAX/ MSP programming environment. The end product is a constantly evolving, machine-improvised soundscape that is distinct in each implementation. Catera's sound installations reflect his interest in site-specific sound manipulation and surveillance, which he achieves with software also written in the MAX/ MSP programming environment.
