Seth Cluett

Artist in residence at EAT, Nokia Bell Labs

Seth Cluett is a composer and visual artist who creates work that explores everyday actions at extreme magnification, examines minutiae by amplifying impossible tasks, and tries to understand the working of memory in forms that rethink the role of the senses in an increasingly technologised society.

Seth is the acting director of the Computer Music Center and assistant director of the Sound Art programme at Columbia University. He is also artist in residence with Experiments in Art and Technology (EAT) at Nokia Bell Labs, where he maintains a studio and is active in research on virtual and augmented reality acoustics, and multisensory communication.

The recipient of grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Fund and Meet the Composer, Seth’s work has been presented internationally at venues such as the Whitney Museum and MoMA PS1. His concert work has been commissioned by ensembles ranging from the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the International Contemporary Ensemble to So Percussion.
