Ron Kuivila's work focuses on the ephemerality of technology and technological innovation in musical practice over the last 40 years. Using unusual home-made and home-modified electronic instruments his work explores the same vein as that of David Tudor and Alvin Lucier, with whom he studied. He was among the pioneers of the use of ultrasound and of sound sampling, and more recent pieces have explored compositional algorithms, speech synthesis and high voltage phenomena. Kuivila studied with Alvin Lucier at Wesleyan University and with Robert Ashley and David Behrman at Mills College. He has been an NEA Fellow at Creative Associates and an artist-in-residence at Media Study/Buffalo (1979-80). He was a 1980 CAPS recipient. He has given concerts at the Kitchen, P.S. 1, PASS, The Experimental Intermedia Foundation and the Bilhaud Gallery in New York. Other concerts have been presented at 80 Langton Street and Mills College in the San Francisco area, at Media Study and SUNY in Buffalo, the 'Third Coast New Music Festival' in Houston, Real Art Ways in Hartford, and Wesleyan University in Connecticut. Installations have been shown at the San Francisco Institute, the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art, Media Study/Buffalo, 80 Langton Street and P.S. 1. Copyright (C) Lovely Music.
