Betsey Biggs, Cogut Humanities Center Postdoctoral Fellow in Music
Betsey Biggs is an artist and composer working with music, sound, video, interactivity, installation and performance. Her work aims to expose the beautiful in the mundane, to actively engage the audience, and to transform the city into a creative interface through psychogeographic practice, and has been seen and heard at venues including Issue Project Room, Experimental Intermedia, Sundance Film Festival, The Berkeley Art Museum, and MASSMoCA. Recent projects include an outdoor mixer powered by people's shadows and a series of downloadable soundtracks meant for walkers to create a cinematic experience for themselves. Betsey is a postdoctoral fellow in Brown's multimedia and electronic music program, and recently received a Ph.D. from Princeton University.
