Robert Dow

Robert Dow (b. Oakland, 1964) is a composer of electroacoustic music working in Scotland. He graduated with degrees in Science, Music, Law and Film Studies at the University of Edinburgh, and holds both an MA and a PhD from the University of Birmingham where he studied under Jonty Harrison. Formerly, he was a member of BEAST—Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre—and with them, has participated in numerous concerts of electroacoustic music throughout Britain.

His present musical output is predominately acousmatic in nature, concentrating principally on the use of strongly associative sounds whose origin may be easily discerned, for example environmental sounds, instrumental sounds and vocal sounds. He is also concerned with the aesthetic and technical problems that the performance of electroacoustic music brings, particularly where real-time spatialisation of such music is involved.

Robert Dow is currently a student of Biotechnology at the University of Edinburgh.
