Sean Dougall is a composer, software designer, and proponent of the “mad scientist” creative tradition. In addition to teaching music technology in the Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television Program at the University of Southern California, he is the human force behind the innovative software of ElectroMonkey Media.
He instructs the SMPTV Technology Bootcamp which is designed to immerse students in all aspects of computer technology relating to film scoring, from mock-ups to delivery, at the beginning of their careers. Acting as producer and music editor for the scoring sessions during the remainder of the year, he helps students apply those lessons on SMPTV scoring dates as well as student film sessions.
Before studying film scoring at the University of Southern California, Sean Dougall studied oboe with Ray Still at Northwestern University, and composition with Phillip Rhodes at Carleton College. He lives in Point Richmond with his wife, composer Jen Wang.
