Chrysa Prestia is currently doing doctoral work at Stanford University and the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics. A native of Maryland, Prestia studied music and cognitive science at Hampshire College, composition at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University (BA 1997) where she was a Provost Research Fellow, and electroacoustic music and digital arts at the Audiovisual Institute of Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain (MA 1999). Her work, consisting of instrumental music, electroacoustic music, and multimedia art, has been performed in the United States, Canada, and Europe. One aspect of her current compositional work is the incorporation of mathematical systems and computer-assisted algorithms to create multi-layered formal structures that model the behaivioral and structural complexity of organic systems. In addition to her work as a composer, Prestia is Managing Editor of Computer Music Journal.
