Composer Guy Barash is “a risk-taker, willing to pull ideas from all disciplines as he jumps into the unknown.” (icareifyoulisten.com) Exploring time and memory perception within multi-metric environments and utilizing electronics, microtonality, and extramusical sources, Barash abandons the confines of genre, inventing a sound world uniquely his own. Recent accolades include performances at the Metropolitan Opera Guild’s Exploring 20th-Century Opera series, Fort Worth Opera’s Frontiers 2016 showcase, MATA Festival 2015, an American Opera Projects fellowship, Composer-in-Residence position at Turtle Bay Music School, and Exploring the Metropolis’ Con Edison Composition Award. His series of compositions for solo instruments and real-time digital signal processing, Talkback, was hailed as being “at once divine, serene and haunting,” (The Queens Chronicle) and has been performed internationally. Barash is the founder/curator of cross-genre new music series Eavesdropping at Spectrum in NYC which was hailed as a “bold concert series” (icareifyoulisten.com). His debut album, Facts About Water, which chronicles a five-year collaboration with American author Nick Flynn, was released on Innova Recordings in 2014.
