— About me, social media, and how to get in touch
Kristina Dutton is a composer, musician, and media artist who specializes in interdisciplinary work. Her compositional focus is in film, dance, and multimedia events.
Many of her own projects are inspired by collaborations with scientists and a love of the natural world. She explores sound through field recording as a certified naturalist, and has a background studying ecology at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, before entering a music conservatory program at DePaul University in Chicago.
As a violinist she has performed on more than 50 albums of various genres. Her rigorous conservatory training led her toward a brief career in orchestral work, but she soon gave herself over to her love affair with the art of pop music, writing string arrangements for indie bands like American Football and performing with rockers like Glen Hansard, Peter Bjorn and John, and the Autumn Defense. This, along with several commissions for multimedia events and installations, paved the way for her current compositional work.
Her recent notable awards include support from New Music USA, The Zellerbach Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation, The Precipice Fund, The Intermusic Musical Grant Program, The San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music Fund, and The Fleishhacker Family Foundation.
