Randall West is a composer and sound artist whose catalog includes works for the concert hall as well as electroacoustic, vocal, and experimental music. He tends to explore systems that ask performers to interact through game-like scenarios… originally trained as an economist, he draws from models of social behavior and choice to create these scenarios.
At the same time, his music engages its audience with colorful timbres, striking melodies, and a vivid theatricality. His musical inspiration spans from 20th century modernism to the baroque, Indian classical, Japanese folk, electronic, avant-garde, and popular music.
Randall was commissioned by ACM in 2013 for the Sound of Silent Film Festival.
