About the Presenter

Composer, digital media artist, and video game developer Ben Houge has long been exploring the intersections of divergent disciplines. Highlights from his twenty-year career in the game industry include serving as audio director of Tom Clancy’s EndWar (2008) and composing the celebrated soundtrack for Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura (2001). His performances, sound art, and generative video have been presented internationally, most recently at Boston’s ILLUMINUS Festival, Music Acoustica in Beijing, and, in collaboration with acclaimed dance group New Movement Collective, at Southbank Centre in London. In 2012 he was a visiting artist at MIT, and he currently teaches iPad programming and digital narrative at Berklee College of Music, having returned to Boston after two years helping to launch a new master’s program in music technology at Berklee’s new campus in Valencia.
