Mark Cetilia is a sound/media artist working at the nexus of analog and digital technologies. Exploring the possibilities of generative systems in art, design and sound practice, Cetilia makes work that is an exercise in carefully controlled chaos. He is a member of the media art group Redux – recipients of a Creative Capital Grant in Emerging Fields – and the electroacoustic ensemble Mem1, described in the Oxford University Press’ Grove Dictionary of American Music as “a complex cybernetic entity whose evolving, custom-built systems are as important an aspect of the duo’s achievements as their ever-innovative sound.”
Cetilia holds a PhD in Computer Music and Multimedia from Brown University and an MFA in Digital + Media from RISD. His work has been screened or installed at the Institute for Contemporary Art (London), Oboro (Montréal) and O’ (Milan). He has performed widely at venues including Café OTO (London), STEIM (Amsterdam), Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions and Roulette (NYC). His sound works have been published by Interval, Radical Matters, Dragon’s Eye Recordings and the Estuary Ltd. imprint, which he runs with his partner Laura Cetilia.
