Percussionist Chris Cogburn is an active performer, educator and organizer, currently living in Austin, Texas.

Current projects include an electro-acoustic trio with avant-vocalist Liz Tonne and Baltimore electronic musician Bonnie Jones and frequent duo collaborations with Vancouver percussionist Jeffrey Allport, Seattle-based pianist Gust Burns and Houston trombonist David Dove.

Cogburn has led workshops on creative music making around the U.S., Canada and Mexico, working in contexts as diverse as inner-city community centers, homeless shelters, public and private high schools, Universities and Pauline Oliveros' Deep Listening Space.

Interested in inter-media collaborations, Cogburn recently traveled on the Wave Books Poetry Bus, performing solo and with poet Joshua Beckman, with a final performance at James Turrell's Roden Crater.

Beginning in the summer of 2003, Cogburn has hosted an annual festival of improvised music - the No Idea Festival - showcasing a handful of Texas' premiere creative musicians in collaboration with improvisors from around the U.S., Europe, Japan, Mexico, Canada and beyond.
