Roddy Schrock is a sound artist
who digitally mines everyday sound for the profound and canvasses the glitzy,
rough edges of pop for its articulate immediacy. The thread which runs through
all of his work is focus on creation of sonic space in which seemingly
oppositional ideas, both musical and cultural, are forced to confront one
another, creating gentle friction, unifying spiky ideas in the form of sound
He is also an educator, teaching at NorCal DJMPA in San Francisco. During the
summer he teaches at STEIM, Amsterdam, and is the Digital Arts Coordinator for
the Community School for Arts in Silicon Valley. He writes regularly for New
Music Box and e/i Magazine.

human, meditative, as well as subtly confrontational ritual experience
for the audience as a collective.It can't be done without you; come see why...
