Michael Sperone’s musical endeavors are ambitious and wide ranging. After his album release of Tintinnabulation, he is now composing, performing, building electroacoustic instruments, and coding for art installations. In addition, he is currently launching the New Jersey based Red Oak Contemporary Ensemble. Like many composers his age, he identifies with a wide spectrum of music from post-war serialists to mid-90’s indie-rock – and is trying to incorporate all these influences in a meaningful way.
Michael studied classical percussion with Ray DesRoches, Peter Jarvis, and Tom Kolor. His composition studies have been with John Link, Jeffrey Kresky, Kevin Norton – and most recently with Huang Ruo, and Du Yun at SUNY Purchase where he earned his masters in composition. He held a residency at BetterFarm’s betterArt and at Rhymes With Opera’s summer workshop where he composed and premiered new works. His music has been premiered by NJPE, Purchase New Music, Joe Bergen, and Justin Wolf. Michael’s music is published by Calabrese Brothers Music, LLC.
