Dan Tramte

Instructor, Creative Technologies in Music

Dan Tramte’s creative work exists somewhere in the space between visual music and audio gaming. His music resembles the experience of playing a video game or the activity of scrolling through a social network feed. Likewise, Tramte also codes audio-visual web applications and builds gaming environments that feature 3D-spatialized procedural audio. Having founded the 501c3 nonprofit organization “Score Follower” (YouTube channels Score Follower Incipitsify and Mediated Scores), Tramte is responsible for the most widely used legal new music audio+score resources on the net. Working at his standing desk, he curates works, produces recording+score videos, and uploads/shares them online. In addition to following scores, Tramte also runs a web audio programming tutorial series called Browser Noise on the youtube channel, The Audio Programmer. Tramte earned a Ph.D in Music with a specialization in computer music media from the University of North Texas, as well as a MM and BM in composition and performance from Bowling Green State University. Prior to teaching at Virginia Tech, Tramte taught courses in musicianship, physics of sound, and computer music at Central Connecticut State University and Harvard University.
