About Chloe Alexandra Thompson
Thompson is a Cree, Canadian, interdisciplinary artist and sound designer. Thompson approaches sound as a mode of connection—embracing the kinesthetic agency of sound to compose abstract feats of spatialized audio recording and synthesis. Her work engages tactics of material minimalism to create site-specific installations that sculpt droning, maximalist experiences out of space and sound. Using audio programming software, computational processing, and acoustic instruments, Thompson’s work seeks to create connection by guiding audience participants through these augmented experiences.
Thompson’s work, often utilizing multi-channel audio or high-density loudspeaker arrays, has previously been presented by CTM Berlin, and Hellerau (DE), MUTEK Montreal, Send + Receive Festival, and Quiet City (Canada); British Council Arts and Somerset House for Amplify DIA, Arebyte, and Hervisions (UK) ; Qubit (NY); On the Boards, and Wayward Concert Series (WA); Subharmonic: Sonic Arts Symposium - PICA, Unity Gain: High Density Loudspeaker Array, Disjecta, Yale Union, and Variform Gallery (OR), among others. She has presented collaborative works for The Kitchen, Danspace, and Lincoln Center (NY); The Cube at Virginia Tech (VA); Krannert Arts Center (IL); NYU Abu Dhabi (UAE); The Wiltern (CA); Out of Sight (WA); Converge45, Disjecta, SIX for Subharmonic, and PICA T:BA Festival 2016 and 2017 (OR).
