Biography

Barry Schrader has been acclaimed by the Los Angeles Times as “a composer born to the electronic medium”, named “a seminal composer of electro-acoustic music” by Journal SEAMUS, and described by Gramaphone as a composer of “approachable electronic music with a distinctive individual voice to reward the adventurous”. “There’s a great sweep to Schrader’s work that puts it more in line with ambitious large-scale electronic works by the likes of Stockhausen, a line that can be traced backwards to Mahler, Bruckner and Beethoven. ” writes Dan Warburton of the Paris Transatlantic Magazine. His compositions for electronics, dance, film, video, mixed media, live/electro-acoustic music combinations, and real-time computer performance have been presented throughout the world. He has received recognition in the form of grants, awards, and commissions, from such organizations as the Groupe Musique Exp豩mentale de Bourges, Apple Computer, ASCAP, Yamaha, Meet the Composer, Los Angeles Film Forum, URBAN-15, The CalArts Contemporary Music Festival, Res Musica, Yellow Springs Institute and the Centre Internationale de Recherche Musicale, and has recently been awarded a Copland Grant through Innova Recordings. His works have been featured in numerous festivals including the Australian International Electronic Music Festival, Festival d’Automne a Paris, Tokyo Gakugei University Exhibition of Electronic Music, New Music Los Angeles, Musiques Actuelles Nice Côte d’Azur, the Darmstadt Festival, Synth粥, the London Almeida Festival, the Biennale de Paris, and the Beijing MusicAcoustica Festival.
