Michael Kinney
Born in St. Paul, Minnesota in August of 1969, Michael Kinney began studying the piano at an early age. As a recipient of The Vittorio Giannini Award for Composition, he received a Bachelor of Music in Composition from The North Carolina School of Arts (NCSA) in 1994. In 2001 Kinney moved to France to study computer music at The Centre de Création Musicale Iannis Xenakis (CCMIX) where he continues to work as assistant musical during the summer sessions. Kinney currently resides in Paris and is on the faculty of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris where he creates music for dance and teaches a course in accompagnement de danse.
Marco Oppedisano
Marco Oppedisano is an American guitarist and composer whose compositions focus on the innovative use of electric guitar in the genre of electroacoustic music. Since 1999, his musique concrète/acousmatic music compositions have utilized multitrack recording and extended performance techniques for electric guitar and bass. His electroacoustic music has been described as “...mindbending music for guitar and electronics... hear Oppedisano’s intricate roar.” -Time Out New York
Robert Voisey
“With few opportunities and much competition,...composers show creativity in just getting heard.” And in Chris Pasles’s article in the Los Angeles Times, Robert Voisey is highlighted as one of those composers. Composing electroacoustic and chamber music, his aesthetic oscillates from the Romantic to the Post Modern Mash-Up. His work has been performed in venues throughout the world including: Carnegie Hall, World Financial Center Winter Garden Atrium, and Stratford Circus in London.
