Christopher Haworth is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate on the Music and Digitisation Research Group based at University of Oxford. His work concerns genre and genealogy in digital music and sound art, with current work investigating the use of online ethnography methods to analyse genre communities such as microsound that are in part 'digitally native'. Other interests include technology, aesthetics and authorship in digital music. In a recent article for Computer Music Journal he examined the ways in which particular tools and techniques are made to carry a nuanced politics of what electronic music 'is' in 'Extreme' Computer Music and Noise genres. Christopher completed his Ph.D. at Queen’s University Belfast in the Sonic Arts Research Centre in 2012.
