Alexis Crawshaw

Crawshaw is a transdisciplinary composer, researcher and educator. She is currently a PhD student both in the Media Arts and Technology (MAT) program at UC Santa Barbara, and in the Ecole Doctorale "Esthétique, Sciences et Technologies des Arts" (EDESTA) at the Université Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis. As an artist and researcher, she has worked on a variety of compositions, installations and performative projects both in France and the United States. Crawshaw’s research interest is in exploring musical composition both 1) across the different sensory modalities and 2) as a means of structuring formative temporal experiences, particularly pedagogical ones. One main focus has been on composing computer music that engages the somatosensory system with very low bass frequencies and/or vibrotactility (vibrational touch). Her other work is concerned with the development of a transdisciplinary pedagogical model.
