Craig T. Walsh Edit Profile
Bachelor of Music, Mannes College Music, New York City, 1993. Master of Fine Arts, Brandeis University, 1995. Doctor of Philosophy, Brandeis University, 1999.
He is an associate professor of music composition at the University of Arizona. Walsh's music is recorded on Albany Records, Centaur Records and the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States CD series. Since the 1990s, Walsh has focused on a variety of chamber music projects, both acoustic and electronic.
His work has been described as “bright and snappy music rooted in modernism, but also referencing the carefree attitude of American pop culture...having brightly contrasting, sharply spliced sections, funkily angular rhythmic loops, motives that are disjunct and dissonant, but function a bit like pop hooks, and harmonies that aren’t tonal, but also tend to accept the idea that a ' center' isn’t a bad thing” (Fanfare Magazine, March/April 2009). In 2008 Albany Records released Walsh's first solo CD, Bugaboo, with the New York New Music Ensemble.
Member of College Music Society, International Association Computer Music, Society Electro-Acoustic Music.
