Biographical Sketch
Travis Garrison is a composer, audio engineer, and performer of electroacoustic music. A common thread throughout his work is a blurring of the boundaries between things organic and things electronic, between the actual and the imagined, and between the real and the hyperreal. Current research interests include computer-based improvisational systems and the aesthetics, history, and theory of electroacoustic music.

Travis recently received Honorable Mention in the SCI/ASCAP 2012 Student Commission Competition. His works have been performed at conferences and festivals including the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC), the Society for Electroacoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS) conference, the Electronic Music Midwest (EMM) festival, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival (NYCEMF), and the Symposium on Arts and Technology at Connecticut College. Travis holds a BA in Computer Music and Composition from the University of California, San Diego, and an MA in Electroacoustic Music from Dartmouth College. Travis is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Music Composition with a cognate in Historical Musicology at the University of Florida, and has recently joined the staff of East Carolina University.
