Chris Kincaid

Audio Builders Workshop
Program Director
Louisville, Ky
Chris Kincaid is a musician, audio engineer, and educator spending his free time building synthesizers and audio equipment. If you get excited about taking things apart, building things, breaking things, or unusual sounds then we should be friends!

He completed his M.M. in Music Composition at the University of Louisville writing works for opera, orchestra, solo, and a variety of chamber ensembles. As an audio engineer Chris specializes in the classical and experimental fields. He lectures at Bellarmine University and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology on topics including digital audio and recording techniques. Chris has designed innovative curriculum in applied music technology, as the laptop/midi controller combo becomes as mainstream as traditional instruments. He has presented his findings at both the International Computer Music Conference and the National Association of Schools of Music Annual Meeting. Chris serves as the program director of Audio Builders Workshop (ABW), a workgroup of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) which promotes DIY audio electronics education. As an active member of AES Chris has chaired the ABW technical program for the last two national AES conventions. Chris has presented his work related to music technology at conferences including AES, Percussive Arts Society International Convention, and American Music Therapy Association Conference. He enjoys writing and performing music with modular synthesizers and continues writing concert music, most recently a string quartet inspired by the weaving traditions of Appalachia. His music can be found on Spotify, Bandcamp, and through his own website at ChrisKincaid.com.
