Brian Smith has been involved with audio technology since the early 1980s and has taught numerous workshops and master classes on sound design and audio production techniques.
After studying electroacoustic composition and computer music at the University of California, Santa Cruz, he co-founded the Language Lab, a multi-media improvisational group which performed throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area. He then moved to Paris, where he studied orchestral conducting and taught music theory, before moving to Berlin in 1994, where he has been living ever since. In 2010 he founded big brain audio, an audio technology training school. He also teaches sound synthesis at the HdpK (University of Applied Sciences) in Berlin and works as an audio technology consultant.
In additional to electroacoustic composition, Brian's interests include creating soundscapes, collages, and functional audio for concentration, meditation, and sleep.
