Speaker: Chris Ford

Technical Principal @ThoughtWorksESP

Chris began to make music with code to compensate for his poor piano technique. It was only later that he realised that programming offers deep insight into musical structures. Over the past few years, Chris has given many talks presenting music theory to programming audiences, covering topics including European classical music, complexity theory, jazz, central African polyrhythms and tuning systems. Day-to-day he works as a consultant for ThoughtWorks Spain in Barcelona.
