Stephen Roddy

Dr. Stephen Roddy is an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Research Fellow investigating Auditory Display for Large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) Networks at CONNECT, Trinity College Dublin. Stephen holds a PhD in Sonification: the Science and Art of representing Data with Sound, from Trinity College Dublin. He employs a multidisciplinary approach to research, undertaking investigations in both Computer Science and the Sonic Arts. His research spans HCI, IoT, Auditory Display, Sonification, Embodied Cognition, Artificial Intelligence, Smart/Mobile Devices, Generative Music Systems, Data-driven Sound & Music, Live Music Performance Systems, Sound Art and Computational Creativity. His work has been widely disseminated through peer-reviewed journal publications, book chapters, and conferences. He has also applied his research in a number of creative and cultural projects developing augmented reality systems, generative music systems, musical compositions, fixed-media pieces and installations. He collaborates with artists, dancers, choreographers, and musicians. His own output has been described as "quirky, odd, heavy electronic instrumental" music while his collaborative work has been described as “raw, rhythmic, primal yet playful” and “searingly powerful and a sheer joy to behold”. Recent events include the Helicotrema Recorded Audio Festival in Venice, the Contemporary Music Centre’s Salon Series at the National Concert Hall of Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival's Embodied at the GPO and the Sonorities Contemporary Music Festival.
