Zack Settel
Zack Settel was born in 1957 and raised in the New York area. He received a BFA in Music Composition from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), where he studied composition with Leonard Stein, Morton Subotnick, Mel Powell, and Morton Feldman. Keenly interested in the use of technology in music production/performance, Settel moved to Paris in 1986, with a Fulbright Scholarship for computer music research and composition at the Institute for Research and the Coordination of Acoustics and Music (IRCAM), headed by Pierre Boulez. After a two-year composing residency there, Settel remained at IRCAM until 1995, working full-time in the music production and music research groups. In 1997 Settel returned to North America, where he was a professor at McGill University in Canada for two years, chairing the Music Technology area, and teaching courses and graduate seminars in computer music. He also was a visiting professor of composition at the University of Montreal in 2001-02. . In addition to composing full time, Settel now is an associate professor in music composition at the UDM. He is also in (arts/science) collaboration with the Center for Intelligent Machines at McGill, working on immersive audio/music. Since 2003, Settel has directed the immersive audio research group at the Societé des Arts Technologiques (La SAT) in Montreal. Some of Settel's music includes the use of advanced live interactive electro-acoustic systems. He has composed chamber works, studio works, as well as music for film, video, television, theater, dance, and opera. His music is published by Editions Ambrioso (Paris), recorded on the CENTAUR, ICMA, MIT Press, and Empreints Digitales labels, and is performed regularly in North/South America and in Europe and Asia. Settel has composed music for Television and Film, and has worked with various performing ensembles including the Ensemble Intercontemporain (Paris), Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (Montréal), Zeitgeist (Minneapolis), the California Ear Unit (Los Angeles), and Chants Libres (Montréal).
