Dr. Charles Linscott Immersive Media Initiative
Dr. Charles P. (“Chip”) Linscott works with the Immersive Media Initiative at Ohio University, where he teaches a series of classes on virtual reality theory, history, criticism, and production. Chip has been exploring audio production and sound design in various capacities since the late 1980s. His book project, Sonic Overlook: Blackness between Sound and Image, examines objects ranging from black experimental cinema to hip–hop sampling to the musical and performative practices of Miles Davis in order to work through the ways in which sonicity intervenes in black visuality. Chip’s writing has appeared in Black Camera, In Media Res, liquid blackness, and the anthology At the Crossroads. He is on the editorial board of liquid blackness journal and was the guest editor of a Close-Up on #BlackLivesMatter in the Spring 2017 issue of Black Camera.
