Kate Doyle

Kate Doyle is a writer and explorer of experimental approaches to form, process and poetics in creativity and consciousness. She is Assistant Professor of Music in the Department of Arts, Culture & Media at Rutgers University-Newarkz, New Jersey. Much of her work centers in understanding art forms and events as models with which to engage self-reflexively in our embodied cognitions. In her creative-scholarly and teaching practice, she seeks to resonate an attention to the edges of knowledge and the possibilities of paradox available to our everyday experience.

Doyle’s practice moves through disciplinary and institutional domains and invests in the collaborative and conversational. With Paul Pangaro, she co-organizes #NewMacy, a cybernetic collective desiring to catalyze conversations and navigate the complex challenges of our time. With Damian Chapman, Patricia Machado and TJ McLeish, she runs The Reading Group, a workshop initiative based in prototyping experimental approaches to expression and conversation. Other projects include a collaborative with Jo Melvin and Chelsea College, the University of the Arts London dedicated to the investigation and production of archiving practices and artist archives.

Doyle’s interest in creative archiving is central to her work with the Lucia Dlugoszewski archives, which she helped to develop at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. in 2016. Her work with Dlugoszewski’s writings and scores and her dialogues project with the pianist Agnese Toniutti attempt to excite an awareness of analysis and archiving as dynamic and performative.

Doyle has been an invited speaker or workshop leader at such institutions and organizations as the Australian National University School of Cybernetics, the Library of Congress, the Systemic Design Association and Chelsea College, the University of the Arts London. Her recent publications include “Problem as Possibility: A Dialogue About Music and Performance with Lucia Dlugoszewski’s Experimental Notation as Case Study” (co-authored with Agnese Toniutti, Contemporary Music Review), “On Music, Knowing, and Black Boxes” (Cybernetics & Human Knowing), and “Cybernetics, Time, and Infinite Poetry” (forthcoming in Technoetic Arts, spring 2024).
