Michael Palumbo is a sound artist and researcher whose work explores networked performance, participation, and more recently, self-organization.
His works have been presented internationally, including Stethoscope Hero (2014) for networked ensemble at the Network Music Festival (U.K.); CrossTalk (2013) at Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium, The University of Toronto Festival of Original Theatre, and Data:Salon; a telematic rendition of Soup Phase (2013) at Stazione di Topolo (Italy); and Iron Harvest (2012) at Conservatoire de Musique du Québec à Montreal.
He has given lectures at the Network Music Festival, Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium, Eastern Bloc, and Small Talk, and co-presented an engineering-brief at the 135th AES Convention in New York. Michael was awarded a research-creation grant from CUSRA to study meaningful play in laptop orchestras in 2014, and in 2013 was the recipient of the Alcides Lanza Award in Electroacoustics.
He is the founder of objetsonore.com, a podcast and multidisciplinary lecture series, and studies electroacoustic composition at Concordia University, Montreal.
