The New York Times Magazine, WIRED, and TIME's annual “Best Inventions” issue have featured his work, as have Neural, Creative Applications, Hyperallergic, and Univision Sports. His academic writing has been published by Autonomedia, Contemporary Music Review, and the Journal of Sonic Studies.
Currently, House is a Mellon Associate Research Scholar at Columbia GSAPP’s Center for Spatial Research. In past lives he was a member of the R&D Lab at the New York Times, directed technology at the design studio Local Projects, was an artist-in-residence at Eyebeam and at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab, and recorded sound for National Geographic’s Okavango Wilderness Project. He holds a PhD in Computer Music and Multimedia from Brown University.
