Dr. Richard Boulanger

Richard Boulanger, Professor of Electronic Production and Design at the Berklee College of Music, is an internationally-recognized performer, composer, researcher, developer, programmer and the founder of Boulanger Labs. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Music from the University of California, San Diego where he worked at the Center for Music Experiment’s Computer Audio Research Lab (CARL). He has continued his computer music research at Bell Labs, Stanford's CCRMA, the MIT Media Lab, Interval Research, IBM and for OLPC. Boulanger has premiered his original interactive works at the Kennedy Center, and appeared on stage performing his Radio Baton and PowerGlove Concerto with the Krakow and Moscow Symphonies. Dr. Boulanger has published articles on sound design, production and composition in all the major electronic music and music technology magazines; and for the MIT Press, Boulanger has authored and edited two canonical computer music textbooks: The Csound Book and The Audio Programming Book. His Csound-based iOS apps include csJam, csGrain and csSpectral. With BT, he has published a Csound-based app for the Leap Motion Controller called MUSE and recently composed and performed a major symphonic work built around these apps called: Symphonic Muse. Among his many grants and honors, he was a Fulbright Professor at the Krakow Academy of Music.. At Berklee, where he has been teaching for over 30 years, he has been honored with both the “Faculty of the Year Award” and the “President’s Award.” Because of Bob Moog's connection with Berklee, over the years, he and Boulanger became friends. One of the first Moog Theremins that Bob ever signed was Boulanger’s wooden “Moog Theremin Kit” after a talk he gave (and a theremin performance he gave) at Berklee - Bob played Amazing Grace. Most importantly, Bob Moog helped to launch Dr. Boulanger’s career when, back in 1987, he featured Boulanger’s composition and ICMC performance of "Shadows - for the Mathews Radio Baton and Electronic Stradivarius" in one of his articles for Keyboard Magazine.
