Charles Holbrow @ The MIT Media Lab

This page documents my time as a student at the MIT Media Lab in the Opera of the Future group. At the Lab I imagined, built, and explored the possibilities for the future of connected music technology.

Fluid Music

My PhD Dissertation, Fluid Music: A New Model for Radically Collaborative Music Production, documents my thinking about the past and future of connected music technologies as of Summer 2021.

Before I was a grad student at the Media Lab, I:

  • Compounded the efficacy of my team as an Audio Tools Specialist at music-video-game developer, Seven45 Studios.
  • Worked various jobs in full-stack web engineering.
  • Coded DSP in C for processing 3D video in the frequency domain at the MIT George Harrison Spectroscopy Lab.
  • Designed audio effects and music technology at the MIT Media Lab.

I love working with: Linux, Kubernetes, Docker, Nginx, MongoDB, Redis, Go, Node.js/TypeScript/npm, HTTP, WebSockets, HTML, JavaScript, CSS. Recently I have been writing C++.

I am an alumnus of Hack Reactor in San Francisco, and the Recurse Center in NYC. I have a Bachelor of Music and Sound Recording Technology degree from the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
