About David B. Wetzel

dbwetzelWelcome!

I am a classically trained clarinetist and bass clarinetist with interests in the traditional clarinet literature, contemporary music, collaborative multimedia, and interactive electroacoustic music. I recently left my position as an associate professor of music at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania, where I taught applied clarinet, recording, music technology, and general music courses. I was coordinator of degree programs in music technology and music business at Mansfield. I hold degrees in both clarinet performance (DMA, University of Arizona; B.Mus. Lawrence University) and computer music performance and concert production (Peabody Consesrvatory).

My research (presented recently at ICMC, SEAMUS, Spark, and in the British journal Organised Sound) focuses on interactive performance systems for electroacoustic music and the sustainability of electroacoustic repertoire. My recent solo performances include the New York Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYC), the Electroacoustic Barn Dance (VA), Electronic Music Midwest (Joliet, IL), eArts (Mansfield, PA), the Endless Mountains Music Festival (Wellsboro, PA), the Spark Festival (Minneapolis, MN), Sonic Fusion (Edinburgh, Scotland), and as a featured performer at  SEAMUS 2012 (Appleton, WI) and the 2010 International Computer Music Conference (NYC/Stonybrook, NY).
