Chris Warren is a sound designer, composer, installation artist, and signal processing researcher.

His sonic installations have been featured at the Museum of Making Music, the Fleet Science Center, NAMM, and the Havana Biennial.  His sound design work ranges from theatre (the “pocket media-opera” Tacoma Narrows Monochord) to dance (scoring the concrete trampoline of Foreground) to industrial, where he designed sound schema for hybrid vehicles.

Dr. Warren’s research in acoustic measurement produced the EchoThief Impulse Response Library.  These sonic snapshots of distinctive spaces throughout North America provide one of the most rich and varied collections of reverbs available.

He performs with A Hundred Ghosts and BASSER and is a resident artist at Space4Art in San Diego.  His software company SuperHoax develops unique audio effects for Ableton Live using the innovative Max for Live programming language.
