    Garrett Laroy Johnson works with responsive media environments to probe, condition, engender, and refract relations between technological determinations and productions of subjectivity. Trained as a musician and musicologist, questions of ensemble, materiality, expression, gesture, and vocality are central to his research. Johnson designs and creates digital-physical systems to compose with sound, light, and expressive materials in immersive and quotidian spaces alike. Johnson has presented research-creation at ACM MOCO, SEAMUS, SLSA and SLSAeu, ACLA, AAG, and has had works performed and exhibited at Kennedy Center as well as the National Academy of Sciences in DC, in London, San Francisco, Cincinnati, and Phoenix. A significant aspect of his work deals in community building and organizing, exemplified in varied and far-flung groups such as LORKAS (the laptop orchestra of arizona state, 2013-2015), PHuN (the post-human network, 2016-present), and ITITIT{inc} (2017-present). Garrett received an MA in musicology from Arizona State University and a B.M in Music History from Ohio University. He’s currently a PhD candidate in Media Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University, USA. He is a researcher at Synthesis @ ASU and ASU’s Center for Philosophical Technologies.
