Kyle started writing and producing music utilizing synthesizers, samplers and computers at the young age of 14. This passion for music technology led to a life long pursuit that has shaped his work and studies. He attended the University of California San Diego to study music technology with the likes of Miller Puckette, and after working for a few years working within industry found a love for sharing this knowledge through teaching others. Kyle then went on to earn a master’s degree in Recording Arts & Audio Pedagogy from the University of Colorado Denver. Soon after he served as a adjunct professor at CU Denver, and Front Range Community College, before moving on to Indiana University to teach as a Visiting Assistant Professor in their renowned Audio Engineering and Sound Production program, at the Jacob’s School of Music. Kyle then served as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Trinity College in Hartford, CT; where he was charged with building up their new Music Production Minor, and repairing their recording studio. He now works within the Visual and Performing Arts Department at MTU, thus continuing a lifelong mission of helping others remove the technological barriers to their creativity in sound and music. Specialized research interests include synthesis, sound design, immersive audio, generative music, interactive audio installations, 360 degree recording, and surround sound production. Kyle’s teaching philosophy can be summarized as a blend of traditional teaching strategies, and guided student experiences that empower students with the tools necessary for practice, application of knowledge, and further independent exploration.
