Mark Coniglio is a composer, media artist, and co-founder of the performance group, Troika Ranch. Coniglio is noted for being a pioneer in the realm of performance works, for integrating not only music, dance, and theater, but also interactive digital media. As a programmer, he created Isadora, a media manipulation tool that allows users to control digital video and sound. His compositions are notable for their rhythmic constructions and use of sampled sound, both meant to create percussive instruments. He performed as part of Troika Ranch at The Kitchen in 1998 during Techno Passion Month.
