Alicyn Warren is adjunct assistant professor of composition: electronic and computer music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

She is a composer of electroacoustic music whose pieces often include extra-musical elements: video images, text, or recognizable recorded sounds. She has received grants, prizes, and fellowships from the NEA, American Musicological Society, Columbia University Society of Fellows in the Humanities, and the Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition. Warren earned a Ph.D. in music from Princeton University, where she studied with Paul Lansky, Steven Mackey, and Milton Babbitt.

Her music and video works are available on the Centaur, Computer Music Journal, SEAMUS, and Le Chant du Monde labels. Before beginning to teach at IU in 2008, Warren was a faculty member at the University of Michigan School of Music and School of Art & Design, the University of Virginia, and Columbia University.
