Patrick Liddell Patrick Liddell recently received this Doctor of Music at Northwestern University in Music Composition. His primary instructors have been Jay Alan Yim (Northwestern University, Evanston IL), Chris Mercer (Northwestern), Peter McIlwain (Monash University, Melbourne, Australia), and Steve Heinemann (Bradley University, Peoria IL). His music has been performed by Function Ensemble (London, UK), Monash Gamelan Ensemble (Melbourne), pLAy Ensemble (Los Angeles, CA), Vox Novus (NYC, NY), Third Coast Percussion Ensemble (Chicago, IL), and many other chamber and popular groups. His art is a combination of music and video (video being the visual counterpart to the temporality of sound), and in a postmodern idiom attempts to combine popular, art, and world musics into a "unified disassociation". His most recent project, Arrow To The Sun, is a multi-dimensional fractal-art piece that fuses music, video, taste, touch, smell, and thought to evoke an anti-narrative of spiritual enlightenment.
