About Me

Picture of Thomas Royal

I live in Gainesville, Florida where I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Music Composition at theĀ University of Florida.

I am in the process of writing a dissertation that applies scholarly writings on play to analyze what it means to perform music using computers.

I am also working on a number of dorky hand made instruments, musical experiments with computer vision, iPad interactive music apps, and various websites (most of which are coming soon, if at all.)

I live with my wife Holly Merton who makes amazing jewelry.

Email me at if you have questions.

C.V. is available here.
