Christopher Bailey

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

IMG_8536Born outside of Philadelphia, PA, Christopher Bailey turned to music composition in his late ‘teens, and to electroacoustic composition during his studies at the Eastman School of Music, and later at Columbia University. He is currently based in Boston, but frequently performs in New York City. His work Walking Down the Hillside at Cortona, and Seeing it’s Towers Rise Before Me won a mention in the 2009 Salvatore Martirano Competition at the University of Illinois; Balladei was a finalist at the Earplay competition in 2007; Sand won a mention at Denmark’s 2007 Infinite Composing interactive computer-music competition. His music explores a variety of musical threads, including microtonality, acousmatic and concrete sounds, serialist junk sculpture, music in flat forms and its consequences, and constrained improvisation.  For more information, mp3’s, software, and fun, informative and interactive paraphernalia, see http://music.columbia.edu/~chris .
