About the Author

As a composer, musician, educator, and creative director, Robert's career has spanned both music and visual arts, creating award- winning work in both fields. Raised in New York City's Greenwich Village by parents who were active in the arts, he was immersed in music, theater, literature, and the visual arts from an early age. His experience includes working for a number of years as a guitarist and composer in New York City, producing as well as performing on many recordings of jazz, blues, and popular music. He now composes full time and has written for theater and film in addition to concert music.


"What a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on personal conversations with such a diverse and impressive group of American composers. Robert Raines masterfully engages each artist to share insights, reflections, and experiences -- a collection that will surely change how you view contemporary composition."--Darla S. Hanley, PhD, Dean of the Professional Education Division, Berklee College of Music "This fascinating book will make a valuable addition to a course in contemporary music for music majors and non-majors alike, as well as a springboard for one-on-one discussion in the composition studio."--Peter Spencer, DMA, Professor Emeritus, Music Theory and Composition, Florida State University "[E]specially useful for those who wish to learn more about 21st-century music. A good resource for those interested in the intersection of creativity and technology."--Choice
