Audio Programming / Spatialization / Voice

Thompson is an interdisciplinary artist and sound designer composing works of sonic minimalism that envelope listeners into a state of equilibrium and fill rooms with discrete frequencies. Her work is composed using audio programming software and acoustic instruments. 

Focused on live performance and spatial intervention, Thompson engineers multi-channel interplay of psychoacoustics, live-processed field recordings, and isolated frequencies to produce felt effects on the body. Fascinated by digital technology’s seemingly endless possibilities for sound experimentation, Thompson routinely collaborates with other artists to explore new avenues for acoustic environments and experiences.

Thompson is presently based in Brooklyn, NY, USA


Thompson’s work (2 - 148 channel) has been presented by MUTEK Montreal + British Council for Amplify, On the Boards, Wayward Concert Series, Qubit, Send and Receive Festival (Canada), Quiet City (Canada), Subharmonic: Sonic Arts Symposium - PICA, Unity Gain: High Density Loudspeaker Array, and Variform Gallery, among others. She has also presented in collaborations for The Kitchen, Danspace, The Cube Virginia Tech, Krannert Arts Center, NYU (Abu Dhabi), Lincoln Center, Converge45, Disjecta, Out of Sight, SIX for Subharmonic, PICA T:BA Festival 2016 and 2017. She will be an artist in residence at Pioneer Works December 2020.


Working with ambisonics, Wave Field Synthesis, and composition Thompson has collaborated with artists to present work at The Cube 148 channel HDLA, a 196 channel Wave Field Synthesis Array, and various other multi-channel setups. Thompson has also worked with firms for fabrication and install of multi-channel arrays for corporate offices and events.
