My Biography

Photo of Casey Farina during performanceCasey Farina is a Phoenix-based artist who creates digital media experiences from iterative processes. This work often combines Farina’s expertise in digital media, music composition, moving image and improvisation. Casey's animated graphic scores have been described as "imaginative" and "progressive" by colleagues and are frequently performed throughout the U.S.  Farina’s dissertation work “Uncertain.indeterminate.unknown,” examines contemporary ideas in cosmology via a digital media performance system. Farina’s installation, project CONDOR, showcased electronic music played by a fleet of miniature robotic airships and was funded by a grant from the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in the Arts (CIRA) at Northwestern University.

Casey was awarded to residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts to study with composer Mark Applebaum and has presented work at the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC), the International Society of Improvising Musicians, the Percussive Arts Society (PAS) conference, and the Spark Festival of electronic music and art. He is currently teaching in the Digital Media Arts program at Glendale Community College and has studied percussion with J.B. Smith, composition with Steve Syverud, Chris Mercer, and Glenn Hackbarth, and music technology with Gary Kendall.
