You don’t usually find academic composers making music that you might find on a dance floor or in a chillout room, but J. Anthony Allen breaks that convention.
J. Anthony Allen has had compositions performed by the Minnesota Orchestra and is a specialist in composing and performing with Ableton Live software. Unlike most academic composers who enter contemporary pop derived worlds, his music actually sounds like it belongs next to Bassnectar or Aphex Twin. J. Anthony Allen talks about his kinetic music and latest album, Anascorcia.
