Stephen Roddy is a musician and researcher working at the intersection of Computer Science and
the Sonic Arts. He holds a Ph.D. in Sonification, the use of sound to perceptualize data, and is a
Research & Teaching Fellow at Trinity College Dublin. Stephen's work explores the multimodal
representation of complex multivariate data (gestural data, IoT/sensor networks) and the application
of autonomous, intelligent systems in human-computer interaction (HCI) as well as creative and
music technology contexts.
Stephen has a vibrant and diverse creative arts practice spanning a variety of media and styles
including music, sound, and interactive art. This work explores similar themes to his research and
has been described as eclectic, dark, and experimental. His pieces are frequently performed and
installed at home and abroad. Previous events have included the New York Electroacoustic Music
Festival, Helicotrema Recorded Audio Festival in Venice, Dublin Dance Festival's Embodied at the
GPO, and the Sonorities Contemporary Music Festival.
