Biography

Isaac Schankler’s: Bandcamp // Facebook // Twitter

Informal bio:

Composer, pianist, accordionist, and electronic musician. Most of my time is split between writing concert music and writing music for indie video games, and I’m especially interested in the interaction between popular and experimental forms. Recent projects include soundtracks for critically acclaimed games (Analogue: A Hate Story, Depression Quest) , an award-winning electroacoustic chamber opera (Light and Power), collaborations with video artists (Sonderbauten, Blocking the Exits), and live performances with software and hardware for human-computer improvisation (Multimodal Interaction for Musical Improvisation, Magnetic Resonance Piano).

As an accordionist, I play gypsy cowboy punk with AK and Her Kalashnikovs.

Formal bio:

Isaac Schankler is a composer, pianist, accordionist and electronic musician living in Los Angeles. His music is inspired by improvisation, indeterminacy, spoken language, narrative, and puzzles.

In 2011 Isaac composed the chamber opera Light and Power with libretto by Jillian Burcar. Commissioned by Juventas New Music Ensemble, Light and Power has been recognized by awards and grants from the American Prize, the National Opera Association, and Meet the Composer. Other recent honors include a grant from the American Composers Forum, a residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the USC Sadye J. Moss Composition Prize, and the Damien Top Prize in the ASCAP/Lotte Lehmann Foundation Art Song Competition.
