Matthew Evan Taylor, composer • IT BEGINS WITH BREATH • Faculty Debut Recital

Sunday • March 5, 2023   |   3:00 pm

Free – $20.00

Composer and improviser Dr. Matthew Evan Taylor (1980) has been hailed as a composer whose music is “insistent and defiant…envelopingly hypnotic” (Alan Young, Lucid Culture). His music has been performed across the United States and Europe by such ensembles as the Cleveland Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, and Metropolis Ensemble. Dr. Taylor’s music is sparked by his curiosity about the surrounding world and the inherent social bonds built through music. Whether he is addressing issues about the nature of time or the bounds of the human breath on musical performance, Dr. Taylor writes music that is engaging, surprising, and unmistakably human. His aesthetic is typified by vibrant instrumental colors, mercurial juxtapositions, and an affinity for groove.
