Christi Denton is a composer and sound installation artist who works with found sounds, electronics, and homemade and modified instruments. She enjoys breaking things, multi-channel speaker configurations, and building instruments where other things control sound; for example, where the audience can influence the composition with their phones or their drinks, or where light, weather, or a microorganism modifies musical parameters. She also leads the Sonic Arts and Music Production Laptop Ensemble (SAMPLE) at Portland State University. You can support her at her Patreon page.
