In this episode artist and composer Michael Theodore
speaks to his early musical influences while growing
up in the multi-cultural epicenter of New York City.
During his discussion with Mark Amerika, Theodore riffs
on his love of jazz and the interrelationship between
improvisation and computational processes, deep
programming, and painting.

Michael Theodore was born and raised in New York City,
and currently resides in Boulder, Colorado. Inspired by
observations and experiences of the natural world,
Theodore creates dynamic fields of color, light, and
sound in a large variety of mediums. Theodore's works
of interactive kinetic installation, sound, music, light,
and moving images have been presented across the United
States, and in Mexico, Trinidad y Tobago, Greece, Spain,
Germany, Sweden, France, Australia, Japan, and China.

Theodore holds faculty appointments at the University of
Colorado, Boulder with the College of Music
(music composition and technology), the Department of
Art and Art History (by courtesy), and is Director of the
ATLAS Institute's Center for Media, Arts and Performance,
a venue for experimental media created with technology.
Theodore received degrees from Amherst College, Yale (MM),
