About

 

Anne Guthrie is an acoustician, composer, French horn player, and writer living in Brooklyn, NY. She studied music composition and english at the University of Iowa and architectural acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she is currently a PhD Candidate. Her music combines her knowledge of acoustics and contemporary composition/improvisation. Her electronic music has focused on exploiting the natural acoustic phenomena of unique architectural spaces through minimal processing of field recordings. Her composition has focused on the orchestration of non-musical sounds, speech in particular. Her French horn playing has focused on electronic processing and extended techniques used in improvisatory settings, as a soloist and with FrauFraulein and Delicate Sen, among others. Her current acoustics research focuses on the use of ambisonics for stage acoustics. The purpose of this site is to share current and past work in all these fields.
