Professor of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), video artist and composer
Christine Southworth is the founder of Ensemble Robot and a professor at MIT. She creates art born from a cross-pollination of sonic and visual ideas. Inspired by intersections of technology and art, nature and machines, and musics from cultures around the world, her music employs sounds from man and nature, from Van de Graaff Generators to honeybees, Balinese gamelan to seismic data from volcanoes. Southworth received a B.S. from MIT in mathematics and an M.A. in Computer Music & Multimedia Composition from Brown University.
