Todd Campbell

"Todd’s prolific and complex contributions on drums, cymbals and percussion lend depth and resonance to his incredible array of electronic applications, creating uncharted forays into sonic alchemy that probably surprised their creator as much as the listener.”

-John Collinge, Progression Magazine

Todd earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music at West Virginia University, studying classical and world percussion with Phil Faini. He studied Recording Engineering with Bob Yesbek at Omega Recording Studios, and earned his Ph.D. in Communications Media and Instructional Technology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. John Collinge of Progression Magazine rated Campbell’s 2010 release “Translation” 12 out of 12 stars, observing that Todd’s “prolific and complex contributions on drums, cymbals and percussion lend depth and resonance to his incredible array of electronic applications,” creating “uncharted forays into sonic alchemy that probably surprised their creator as much as the listener.” John Patrick reviewed “Versification,” noting “many auditory adventures beckon between and within…particularly with his hard-bop tendencies on traditional trap-kit and his battery of electronics.” His research agenda currently focuses on the effects of audio and video encoding on information acquisition among undergraduates.
