Christine Webster is a french composer and researcher.
She works and lives in Paris, France.
Webster studied electoacoustic composition with Jean Schwartz in the late eighties. She worked as an audio post-production sound engineer for the french tv and movie industries and produces her own electronic music, for experimental films, radiophonic residencies, festivals and art exhibitions.
In 2006 she began to investigate the potential of virtual reality and experimental electronic music, mostly on Second Life and on the french Francogrid. In 2013 she worked with EnsaLab's Spatial Media laboratory where she develloped her VR flagship project Empty Room. This project is now part of her thesis, directed by Anne Sedes at CICM Paris 8.
The quality of space sensed trough the materiality of sound is at the center of her sound works, going from the inherent spatiality of sound to vast and complex virtual sound mappings.
