Dr. Wetzel is a classically trained clarinetist and bass clarinetist with interests in the traditional clarinet literature, contemporary music, collaborative multimedia, and interactive electroacoustic music. He holds degrees in both clarinet performance (DMA, University of Arizona; B.Mus. Lawrence University) and computer music performance and concert production (Peabody Conservatory).

His research (presented recently at ICMC, SEAMUS, Spark, and in the British journal Organised Sound) focuses on interactive performance systems for electroacoustic music and the sustainability of electroacoustic repertoire. His recent solo performances include the SPLICE Institute (as faculty artist), New York Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYC), the Electroacoustic Barn Dance (VA), Electronic Music Midwest (Romeoville, IL), eArts (Mansfield, PA), the Endless Mountains Music Festival (Wellsboro, PA), the Spark Festival (Minneapolis, MN), Sonic Fusion (Edinburgh, Scotland), and as a featured performer at SEAMUS 2012 (Appleton, WI) and the 2010 International Computer Music Conference (NYC/Stonybrook, NY).
