CHRIS BROWN composes live electro-acoustic music using new instruments which he designs and builds. Among these is an electronic sound processor with acoustically activated computer controls. He has had commissions for interactive works from the Rova Saxophone Quartet and the Berkeley Symphony, and in 1992 he premiered the evening length piece "Lava" for eight instruments, interactive electronics, and quadraphonic sound. He also performs as a pianist with the improvisational ensembles "Room" and the "Glenn Spearman Double Trio". His music is recorded on Artifact Recordings, Sound Aspects, and Music and Arts, and he also appears on Black Saint and Elektra/Nonesuch labels. He is Co-Director of the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College in Oakland.
