Originally from Utica, NY, Jacob Sachs-Mishalanie is a Brooklyn based composer, songwriter, electronic musician, drummer, and teacher. His recent research and musical projects use ideas about recording and sampling, recursion, generative composition, and the balance of mechanical and natural elements. This has taken shape in many forms, including concert pieces juxtaposing acoustic and artificial sounds, a stop motion music video released by Newlywed Records, minimal pop songs, and performance pieces like “Counterpoint for Two Isolated Drumsets” and “Piece for Eight Microcassette Recorders.” Jacob is currently a PhD candidate in composition at the CUNY Graduate Center, where he studied with Jason Eckardt and Jeff Nichols. He received a BM in composition from SUNY Purchase in 2013, where he studied with Suzanne Farrin, Du Yun, and Huang Ruo. As a teaching fellow, he teaches courses in music technology and music theory at Brooklyn College.
