Michael Pisaro Interview

Despite being co-chair of composition at CalArts, Michael Pisaro stays off way too many people’s radar. Maybe this interview at the “Object Collection” blog will help get you up to speed.

Michael PisaroMichael Pisaro was born in Buffalo in 1961. He is a composer and guitarist, a member of the Wandelweiser Composers Ensemble and founder and director of the Experimental Music Workshop. His work is frequently performed in the U.S. and in Europe, in music festivals and in many smaller venues. It has been selected twice by the ISCM jury for performance at World Music Days festivals and has also been part of festivals in Hong Kong, Vienna, Aspen and Chicago. Most of his music of the last several years is published by Timescaper Music (Germany). Several CDs of his work have been released by Edition Wandelweiser Records, most recently “transparent city, volumes 1 — 4″ and “harmony series (11 — 16)”. His translation of poetry by Oswald Egger (“Room of Rumor”) was published in 2004 by Green Integer. He is Co-Chair of Music Composition at the California Institute of the Arts near Los Angeles. Before joining the composition faculty at CalArts, he taught music composition and theory at Northwestern University from 1986 to 2000.

Mike Pisaro came up on my radar several months ago, chiefly for personal reasons, and I look forward to hearing his work on compact disc recordings and in performance.
