Born in Detroit, Alex Braden studied Classical Piano from age four and Jazz Guitar from age eleven. He taught freelance through college where he eventually abandoned a music scholarship to pursue a BFA in Sound Art. Later, between recording and touring with three bands, Braden further developed his fine art practice: experimenting with interactive and immersive installations in studio and on fellowship at Vermont Studio Center, VisArts, Rocklands, and Montgomery College. Alex’s work has been featured in Hyperallergic, the Washington Post, SPIN, Noisey, and NPR. He shares a space in Northeast Washington, DC with his painter–wife Amy and budding noise–artist–toddler, Quincy.
