Dr. Stephen Roddy is a human-computer interaction researcher, a practitioner of experimental electronic music and sound art and an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Research Fellow investigating Auditory Display for Large-Scale Internet of Things (IoT) Networks at CONNECT, Trinity College Dublin. Stephen holds a PhD in Sonification: the science and art of representing data with sound, from Trinity College Dublin. His current academic research is focused on the place of algorithmically generated sound and music in representing and communicating information to listeners in a world that is increasingly connected by smart devices, AI/ML and IoT technologies. He employs empirical and mixed method strategies in the development of creative auditory display systems which integrate principles from embodied cognition and AI with sonification techniques. His academic work has been widely disseminated through peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and conferences. His artistic work includes installation, data-driven music and sonification, guitar-based improvisation, generative and algorithmic music systems, electronic compositions and collaborations with dancers, choreographers, traditional instrumentalists and other sound artists. His music has been described as "quirky, odd, heavy electronic instrumental" music while his collaborative work has been described as “raw, rhythmic, primal yet playful” and “searingly powerful and a sheer joy to behold”. It explores the phenomenology of embodiment and how the relationship between body and mind influences sound making and listening activities. Stephen's works are performed internationally and he also releases music independently online. Recent performances include the Helicotrema Recorded Audio Festival in Venice, the Contemporary Music Centre’s Salon Series at the National Concert Hall of Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival's Embodied at the GPO and the Sonorities Contemporary Music Festival.
