DeForrest Brown, Jr. is a New York-based rhythmanalyst, media theorist and curator.

Speaker Music is his digital audio and extended media praxis for rerouting sound and gesture into sonic paintings via iPad, or further abstractions through live mixing with Ableton. He is also one half of Elevator to Mezzanine (E-M) with artist and musician Steven Warwick, and most recently released the black comedy mixtape The Wages of Black is Death (PTP) with sound artist Kepla, ahead of their research and performance praxis Substantia Nigra.
