Chris Warren is a sound designer, digital composer, and creator of immersive sonic installations.  His exhibits have been featured at the Museum of Making Music, NAMM, and the Havana Biennial.  Dr. Warren's extensive research in acoustic measurement has produced EchoThief, a library of reverberation captured around North America.  These sonic snapshots can be used to digitally reconstruct a broad spectrum of distinctive acoustic spaces: glacial caves, cathedral domes, abandoned artillery bunkers, and resonant caverns.  EchoThief has been licensed to video games including Sony's Days Gone and Bethesda's Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and has been featured in museum exhibits, audio production software, and sonic work around the globe.
