My name is Chloe and I am enthusiastic about sound! My primary interests lie in sound design, audio for broadcast, instrument design, music technology, interactivity and new media, and analog/digital synthesis and composition. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Audio Engineering and Music Technology from The Evergreen State College in June of 2013. I spent my final undergraduate academic year as the Music Technology/Audio Intern through Electronic Media at Evergreen. I am studying animation and have become quite taken with it, and am actively working to effectively marry my love of sound design with projects in visual media. My academic scope has also expanded to include Computer Science, as I explore the C programming language, SuperCollider and Max MSP, primarily focusing on coding for hardware applications and microcontrollers. Coupling this with my strong background in music, I hope to continue to competently produce my own creative work. I possess a tenacity to learn anything and everything about audio and media. I have been accepted to pursue an MFA in Electronic Music and Production at Mills College in Oakland in Fall of 2013 and will began Graduate work in August.
My continuing work in media and technology has more recently been focused on developing a workshop series focusing on education and advocacy for women, trans, and gender queer individuals who are interested in audio and music technology. I believe that media literacy is a form of revolution that empowers all people to consciously interpret and produce media that suits their creative necessity, and actively seek to facilitate and encourage thoughtful and inventive interaction with technology. I am also in the final stages of editing a hand drawn ink and water color animation chronicling my habits as they pertain to maintaining and encouraging my creative process.
