Dr. Jesse Allison

is an innovator in sonic art technology, thought, and practice. His work centers around the idea that computer interactivity, used wisely, can produce new and engaging forms of art. Technology research, interdisciplinary collaboration and creative activity are fluidly traversed echoing the spirit of his joint faculty position between the Center for Computation & Technology's Cultural Computing focus area (CCT-CC) and the LSU School of Music. As head of the Experimental Music & Digital Media (EMDM) program and a co-PI for the CCT REU program in Interdisciplinary Research Experience in Computational Sciences, he provides students with a link between art and research where themes of human/computer interactivity, embedded computing, social computing systems, and other touch points between technology and society permeate the research and discovery process. An important aspect of both the EMDM program and Cultural Computing, discovery must be viewed as an active endeavor. With a goal to envision (instead of simply adopt) applications of technology in places where it is appropriate, beneficial, and if done well, quite possibly magical.
