Mark Coniglio

Media artist Mark Coniglio is co-founder, with choreographer Dawn Stoppiello, of New York City based Troika Ranch - a dance theater company that integrates dance, theater and interactive digital media in their live performance works.
Coniglio has focused his career as an artist and computer programmer towards a singular goal: to find ways for the movements and vocalizations of performers to interactively manipulate digital media in a meaningful way. This has resulted in the creation of numerous media-intensive performances with Troika Ranch, as well as to the development of software and hardware tools that have allowed other artists to create their own interactive works. Notably, Coniglio is the creator of Isadora®, which has been adopted by artists and VJs worldwide as their primary tool for realizing interactive performances and installations.
Coniglio studied at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) under the tutelage of electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick and received an BFA in music composition in 1989. After graduation he joined CalArts as faculty. From 1990-94 he taught courses in interactive music and was an integral part of the Center for Experiments in Art, Information and Technology. Since that time he has been an independent artist.
Coniglio and Stoppiello received the first Time Out New York Dance Audience “Bessie” Award in 2004, an honorary mention at Prix Ars Electronica 2004, and an a Eddy award from Live Design magazine. Coniglio is also the recipient of two consecutive Digital Fellowships from Dance Theater Workshop in 2004 and 2005 and will act as facilitator for the Digital Fellowship Program in 2006. http://www.troikaranch.org/
