Eran Egozy is a professor of Music Technology at MIT, where he earned degrees in Electrical Engineering and Music. After working in the MIT Media Lab as a graduate student, he went on to co-found Harmonix Music Systems, which developed the wildly successful video game franchises Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
Eran’s current research and teaching interests include interactive music systems, music information retrieval, and multimodal musical expression and engagement. In addition to ConcertCue, his latest projects include *12*, an audience-participation work for chamber music where audience members use their mobile to musically interact with the stage musicians, and Tutti, a massively multiplayer mobile-audience performance piece where the entire audience becomes the orchestra.
Eran is also an accomplished clarinetist, and has appeared as a soloist with the MIT Symphony Orchestra and guest artist on the radio show From the Top. He performs regularly with Boston’s Radius Ensemble.
