Betsey Biggs

Betsey Biggs is a Brooklyn and Providence-based composer and artist whose practice in music, sound, video and installation aims to explore the resonance between sound and image, to actively engage the audience, and to explore the relationships among sound, memory, and geography. Her work has been described by The New Yorker as “psychologically complex, exposing how we orient ourselves with our ears.” She has collaborated with musicians and artists including Margaret Lancaster, Evidence, The Now Ensemble, The BSC, So Percussion, Tarab Cello Ensemble, the Nash Ensemble and filmmakers Jennie Livingston and Amy Harrison. Her work has been seen and heard at venues as disparate as ISSUE Project Room, Abrons Arts Center, the Conflux Festival, MASSMoCA, Sundance Film Festival, and on the streets of Oakland, Red Hook, Williamsburg and the Gowanus. Biggs holds a Ph.D. in Music Composition from Princeton University and is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of American Studies at Brown University.
