J. Donald Feagin Assistant Professor of Music


Alican Çamcı’s output includes concert music, electronic and electroacoustic works, sound installations, and sound design for film and media art. His work features an investigation of sound as a documentary medium, explored through combining instrumental and electronic layers with field and speech recordings and found sounds.

Çamcı’s music has been commissioned and performed by ensembles such as Ensemble Dal Niente, Ensemble Intercontemporain, International Contemporary Ensemble, Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, Oerknal!, Talea Ensemble, and the [Switch~ Ensemble], among others. In addition to his concert music, his film music and sound design work has appeared in festivals and exhibitions including the Venice Film Festival, SXSW, Warsaw Film Festival, IDFA, IFFR, Antalya Film Festival, and Istanbul Film Festival.

Alican received degrees in music composition from the University of Chicago (Ph.D.) and the Peabody Institute (BM-MM). Prior to his arrival at The University of Tulsa, he taught composition and electronic music as a visiting assistant professor at Carleton College.
