Jacob Sachs-Mishalanie     

Jacob Sachs-Mishalanie is a composer from Brooklyn, NY. His current projects focus on a playful approach to generative music using the software MaxMSP. His music often features the sounds of general MIDI, field recordings, modular synthesizers, pitched percussion instruments, and recorded voice. He currently teaches music technology classes at the Sonic Arts MFA program at Brooklyn College and manages technology in the Hunter College music department as a College Laboratory Technician. He holds a PhD from the CUNY Graduate Center, where his research focused on the music of Pierre Schaeffer.

Some recent and ongoing projects include collaborations with Pogo Dance, a collaborative album with Matthew Ryals supported by the New Music USA Creator Development Fund, the Algorithmic Sound Series, and several Max for Live devices.
