Kristina Warren (US, UK) is an electroacoustic composer, improviser, and researcher. Her diverse output — including electronic-vocal performance, non-traditionally notated scores, and scholarship on gender in electronic music — imagines the coherence of seemingly disparate processes, such as noise and individualized listening. Recent interests include the quality of improvisation across so-called live and recorded moments, the hidden noise potentials of voice, and the effects of human-computer interaction on the pacing of performative utterance. Warren’s work has been programmed at events such as the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition, ICMC, Mise-En Music Festival, NYCEMF, and TENOR, and performed by ensembles such as Chartreuse, Dither, JACK Quartet, and Sō Percussion.
