Musician and composer Lin Culbertson utilizes her time spent as an improviser to inform her sound work. Her compositions are comprised of synthesized sounds, field recordings and conventional instruments, which are combined and controlled by semi-random systems. The influence of her graphic design background is evident in her use of graphic scores, video screen grabs and visual translation software to include non-musical elements in the sound creation process. She is a founding member of the improvisational unit White Out and has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists including Jim O’Rourke, Thurston Moore, William Winant, Nels Cline, C Spencer Yeh and Carlos Giffoni, among others.
