Erik DeLuca is an artist who explores sound as historically entangled and evolving. He makes sound installations that are essays, writes sculpturally, and teaches as a kind of performance. He was an Isle Royale Artist-in-Residence from July 5th to July 23rd, 2011, where he recorded a variety of island sounds and created Lake: for string quartet along with a 8mm film.
DeLuca received a PhD in Composition and Computer Technologies from the University of Virginia, was recently an American-Scandinavian Foundation postdoctoral fellow, and worked in Yangon, Myanmar with the support of an 2018 Asian Cultural Council grant. From 2016, DeLuca has lectured at the Iceland University of the Arts (teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses across the departments of Music, Design & Architecture, Fine Arts, and Performing Arts). Erik currently teaches sonic arts and scholarship as Visiting Assistant Professor of Music and Multimedia at Brown University.
