Ramon Castillo, is an Associate Teaching Professor of Music at UMass Lowell.

For the Composition for New Media program, he teachers Contemporary Styles and Analysis, Sound Narrative, and Applied Composition. He directs the Contemporary Electronic Ensemble and founded the Video Game Ensemble (Fall 2022 debut). His creative output combines Minecraft and other video games, Ableton Live, guitar, live looping, signal processing, and sound reactive visuals – prepared specifically for expressive live performance. Many performances feature highly automated looping made possible by an extensive array of programming. The system, built in Ableton Live, Max for Live, and Clyphx Pro can create layers and effects that a standard looping environment can’t. The concepts and techniques were born from a series of experiments in 2011. His compositional and creative career relies on Ableton Live, Max, and arrays of hardware. Ramon has developed many live performance techniques involving custom software interfaces, DIY hardware, and high levels of automation including asymmetric loop triggers and audio quantization
