I’m a Santa Barbara based composer, artist, and programmer interested in blurring the boundary between humans and machines. My research involves techniques for generating music and art and interpreting social data through the use of computers. Previously, I’ve created systems for algorithmic portraiture and machine generated collages. Applying these principles to music, I’ve created autonomous music improvisation tools that I’ve performed and recorded with. I enjoy trying to digitally quantify and simulate things we normally consider very “organic”, hopefully as a way of getting closer to what actually makes us human.
