Kris T. Force

I am an electroacoustic composer, performer and visual artist living and working in Oakland, CA and exhibiting and performing internationally. I work across several mediums including music, sound, drawing, painting, performance, photography, video and new media. Predominant themes in my work include embodiment, materiality and remediation. I engage both old and new mediums, classical techniques and new technologies. I find the nuances and implications of these juxtapositions intriguing as well the thresholds between human and material agency. I am interested in the medium taking on its own intelligence, apart from my creation, with this in mind, I employ improvisation techniques, human actors, living signals, generative algorithms, machine learning, real time data streams and sympathetic resonances.
