Recently lauded in The New York Times as an “avatar of experimental music,” David Rosenboom is a composer-performer, interdisciplinary artist, author and educator, who over five decades has explored the spontaneous evolution of musical forms, multidisciplinary composition and performance, unique languages for improvisation, cross-cultural collaborations, performance art and literature, interactive multi-media and new instrument technologies, art-science research and philosophy, and extended musical interface with the human nervous system. His wide-ranging work is broadly distributed and presented around the world. Recent highlights have included a retrospective of his music spanning 50 years presented by The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and an exhibition of his historical work in brainwave music at the Centre Pompidou-Metz in France in 2015. In 2016 a retrospective of his work for piano was presented at Tokyo Opera City Recital Hall in Japan. He holds the Richard Seaver Distinguished Chair in Music at California Institute of the Arts where he is also Dean of The Herb Alpert School of Music. Rosenboom is a Yamaha Artist.
