Christopher Haworth

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Christopher Haworth is the ICASP postdoctoral fellow at McGill University working in the Department of Philosophy on instrumentality and authenticity in technologically mediated improvisation practices. Prior to this, he completed a PhD in composition at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, where he focused on subjectivity and listener-agency in computer music composition. His works are designed in such a way as to “dramatize” the listening act, revealing voluntary and involuntary mechanisms of audition and encouraging “perceptual creativity”. He has a BA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and an MMus in composition from Goldsmiths College, London.
