Frank Dufour

University of Texas at Dallas
United States
Before joining the academia, Frank Dufour had a rich history in sound industry, first as a sound engineer specialized in the restoration of sound archives in Paris, France at the National Radio, then evolving into music production and video post-production, multimedia design, higher education, and art. Frank holds a Ph.D. in Sciences of Information and Communication from the University of Paris VIII and is currently a Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas in the school of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication (ATEC). He spearheaded the creation and installation of innovative soundscape features in several Dallas institutions, including The Dallas Museum of Art (“Coastlines,” Soundscapes for Paintings, August 2010) and The Perot Museum of Nature & Science (Permanent Soundscapes for the 12 exhibit halls, March 2012-present). As active new-media artists, Frank & his wife founded Agence5970, an independent laboratory dedicated to artistic experimentation and sound design, which explores concepts emerging at the conjunction of perception and representation. Within this context, Frank is continually experimenting with sound, from artistic, acoustic, philosophical, and technological viewpoints. Together with xtine burrough, Frank created in the school of ATEC at UT Dallas, the independent Laboratory of Synthetic and Electronic Poetry (LabSynthe) destined to observe, study, and create poetic experiences in the context of digital technologies.
