Dr Ian Gibson’s research interests are: composing using electronic media, developing sonic art installations, developing software for singing analysis and synthesis, performance interfaces, virtual learning environments and developing web-based applications for collaborative music composition. He is one of the founders and executive committee members of the National Sonic Art Forum.

Dr Gibson joined Huddersfield University as Senior Lecturer in Music Technology in 2008. Before joining Huddersfield he was a Senior Lecturer and Leader of the Creative Technology Research Group at Bournemouth University. Dr Gibson has a first degree in Computer Studies and was awarded an MSc and PhD in Music Technology at the University of York. His thesis explored the use of voice as a real-time controller for sound synthesis and high level music events. After qualifying in Music Technology, Ian undertook a research post at York University examining real-time singing synthesis using parallel processing architectures. Following this, Ian was employed as a researcher at the Faculty of Music, University of Oxford where he managed the studio, undertook research into Music Technology and tutored in electro-acoustic music.
