Will Redman is a composer, percussionist, and educator based in Baltimore, MD. His acoustic compositions employ confounding extensions and extrapolations of traditional music notation in order to elicit radical interpretation by the performers. His electronic compositions navigate the lines between acoustic instruments, analog electronics and computer. Will's music has been performed, broadcast, and written about in the U.S. and abroad. Festival performances include Arrival: New Music in Berlin, Time Stands Still conference at Wesleyan University, the  Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, June In Buffalo, SCI National Conferences, Neue Toene Open in Stuttgart, and Livewire and High Zero in Baltimore. Excerpts of Will’s scores have appeared in books such as Notations 21 and Music After the Fall, as well as music and poetry journals, grade school arts textbooks, and even on the marquee of a conservatory in France. Will plays drum set, vibraphone and other percussion instruments in several ensembles including the improvising avant-rock band Microkingdom and the percussion quartet Umbilicus. He also leads The Compositions, an ensemble dedicated to performing his own chamber music. Will has earned a BA from the University of Maryland at Baltimore County, an MA from the University of Southampton (England), and a PhD in composition from the University at Buffalo. He has studied percussion with Tom Goldstein and Kevin Norton; composition with Stuart S. Smith, Michael Finnissy, and Jeffrey Stadelman; and computer music with Cort Lippe. Will is Assistant Professor of Music Technology at Towson University.
