Composition & theory

Douglas McCausland

Douglas McCausland is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music currently based out of the Bay Area in California, USA. Fascinated with new sonic territories and processes for creating music, his work engages with the extremes of sound and the digital medium; ultimately, he strives to create visceral music which balances creative exploration with technical nuance. Compositionally, he has focused in recent years almost exclusively on the creation of electronic music for interactive systems and performers, fixed-media, and for hardware-hacked ‘instruments’ and real-time processing.

He also studied with Tristan Murail, at the Institut de Recherche Coordination Acoustique et Musique (IRCAM), and with Gérard Grisey at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris.

Charlie Sdraulig

Charlie Sdraulig's music explores interaction that examines the roles of physicality and perception in human performance. This exploration often takes place at the threshold of audibility. The inherent ambiguity of this context may allow a particular expression of human individuality to emerge.

Andrew Greenwald

Andrew Greenwald (born Queens N.Y) is an American composer whose current work engages with issues of pixelated sound material viewed at increasing resolutions; rational formal containers for that material; and didactic indexing of those containers to form a perceived whole/hole. His work has been commissioned or independently programmed by Ensemble Pamplemousse, Arditti Quartet, JACK Quartet, Mivos Quartet, Spektral Quartet, Ensemble Adapter, On Structure, Ensemble Dal Niente, Line Upon Line Percussion, and Seth Josel at festivals and venues throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
