rachel devorah wood rome

I am a sonic artist, technologist, educator, and labor organizer.

I'm interested in superhuman prolongation, opaque complexity, the re-signification of archaic tools and materials, and parallels between the physical properties and social meanings of spaces.
I practice improvisation with bespoke electronics and with the French horn, my mother tongue.
I value machines for their patience.

My work has received support from the Adrian Piper Foundation (Berlin), EMS (Stockholm), INA/GRM (Paris), MassMoCA [U.S.], the New Museum (New York), New Music USA, and STEIM (Amsterdam).
It has been released on pan y rosas discos(Chicago); Infrequent Seams(NYC); and Full Spectrum Records(Littlefield, TX), published by parallax; Feminist Media Histories; and Ugly Duckling Presse, and has been heard in twelve countries on four continents performed by/with artists such as Laurel Jay Carpenter, Roscoe Mitchell, Lydia Moyer, Ryan Muncy, Liew Niyomkarn, and the William Winant Ensemble.

I am employed as an Assistant Professor of Electronic Production and Design | Creative Coding at the Berklee College of Music, and Councilor with MS1140 AFT Massachusetts.
