Biography

Barry Moon  earned his Ph.D.in music composition from SUNY Buffalo in 1999 where he was a teaching assistant before joining the faculty at Brown University as adjunct/visiting professor.  He later moved to England to fill his appointment as senior lecturer at Bath Spa University.  He joined the ASU faculty in 2006.   

Dr. Moon teaches upper division undergraduate courses at the West campus in sound performance, multi-track digital recording, and digital graphic technologies.  Additionally, his graduate courses explore digital graphic technologies and applications and real-time video/audio processing. 

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Dr. Moon has held a long-time interest in sound recording and production, as well as music composition and music performance, which was nurtured during his early studies at La Trobe University in Melbourne.  Additionally, his most recent research interests include video production, real-time audio and video processing utilizing Max/MSP/Jitter, interface design for performance and installation environments, and computer game development.

A sound/video artist, computer programmer and performer, Dr. Moon’s installations are featured regularly at ASU as well as across the country and around the world.  He says of his work, “My output is too broad to be easily defined, but it has a leaning towards creating greater interaction between performers and the computer.”  Among his many projects, five have been featured at the prestigious International Computer Music Conference, and in 2008 his composition, “Pop,” was featured at the 17th annual Florida Electroacoustic Music Festival, one of the premier events in that field of music.  In addition to his contributions to Music Tech Magazine , Dr. Moon has served as reviewer for Routledge, publisher of academic books and media resources.  He also served on the review board of the British Organised Sound Journal , an international publication that focuses on the rapidly developing methods and issues arising from the use of technology in music today.  Since 2009, Dr. Moon has been producing a series of video tutorials on the Max/MSP/Jitter environment for YouTube. His "Baz Tutorials" channel has received more than 200,000 views, and has more than 1,400 subscribers.
