Michael Sperone is a composer and technologist. His music is rhythmic, dense, quiet, and introspective - he likes to explore new melodic textures both acoustically and electronically. As a programmer he has worked with artists and composers to create new works - including Florian Meisenberg, John Morton, and Joseph Morris. He also has led several ensembles, including On The Cusp New Music, Red Oak Contemporary Ensemble, and Tintinnabulation. Michael studied composition with John Link, Kevin Norton and Du Yun - he has a M.M. in classical composition from SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music. Michael's music is published by Calabrese Brothers Music.
