Taylor Brook is a Canadian composer living in New York, writing and producing music for concert, film, theater, and dance. He studied composition with Brian Cherney, Luc Brewaeys, George Lewis, Fred Lerdahl, and Georg Friedrich Haas. Described as “gripping” and “engrossing” by The New York Times, his compositions have won numerous awards and prizes. His music has been performed around the world by ensembles and soloists such as the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, Quatuor Bozzini, JACK Quartet, Mivos Quartet, Talea Ensemble, ensemble ascolta, and others. In Kolkata, India, he studied Hindustani musical performance with Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya. His music is often concerned with finely tuned microtonal sonorities, combining his interest in exploring the perceptual qualities of sound with an individual sense of beauty and form. Taylor Brook holds a master’s degree in music composition from McGill University and a doctorate in music composition from Columbia University. He is also the technical director of the TAK ensemble.
