Composer and conductor Jeremy Sagala (B.M., M.M., M.A., Ph.D.) has been commissioned and performed by such performers as the New York New Music Ensemble, the Lydian Quartet, David Fedele, DoublePlay, the Washington Square Contemporary Music Society, Steve Beck, the ACME Ensemble, and many others. His music has been described as 'incredibly elegant' with 'gorgeous pitches and lovely orchestration'. A fascination with the fluidity of musical narrative is apparent in each composition, and he strives to create an experience in which the listener is thoughtfully guided through vivid musical space. Delicate orchestration and fragile textures are found throughout his acoustic and electronic compositions, and these are highly informed by spectral techniques, and research into psychoacoustics and cognitive studies. He is grateful to have received awards and honors from ASCAP, SCI, New England Foundation for the Arts, the Wellesley Composer's Conference, among many others. He is a founder and chief director of Ensemble Ilusis, a new music/electronic music group that seeks to expand the public's understanding and appreciation of contemporary music of all kinds. His analysis of Davidovsky's "Flashbacks" is published by VDM Verlag. Having previously taught at Brandeis University and Northeastern University, he is currently Assistant Professor of Theory & Composition at Southeastern Louisiana University. His recent CD "...through autumn into winter" is available through major online retailers worldwide.
