  • Zachary Thomas draws on his training as performer, theorist, and educator as well as his experience as programmer and technician to explore the consequences of diverse philosophical positions and psychological states in (primarily musical) media with a methodology heavily informed by J.T. Fraser’s chronosophical paradigm, the musico-semiotic tradition initiated by E. Tarasti, and contemporary advancements in acoustics and computation―a plethora of influences that explain his extensive use of stochastic processes, algorithmic schemes, extended instrumental/notational techniques, and alternate tuning systems; his interest in multimedia installations; and, above all, his dedication to electroacoustic composition. Mr. Thomas received his MM (2012) and BM (2010) in Theory from the University of Louisville while studying composition with Krzysztof Wolek and musicology with Jean Christensen, with additional lessons and masterclasses from Esa-Pekka Salonen, Per Nørgård and Louis Andriessen.
