Album Notes
Glenn Meade creates and distributes his own unique brand of contemporary electro-acoustic music. As a composer and sound designer, he has been writing contemporary orchestral, chamber, vocal, and musical-dramatic works since 1975. He received his musical education at both the Peabody and American Conservatories of Music, and has had numerous works performed by professional ensembles. Introduced to MIDI control of synthesizers and audio processors in 1986, he quickly became proficient at using the technology to produce dynamic and complex works for a "synthesizer orchestra." While continuing to write new works for both acoustic and electronic media, he has been designing sound for film, video, and theatrical productions, and teaching electronic composition. In his Synthestra Music Studio, he has recorded, edited, and mastered his own CD's as well as those for other professional ensembles. Using his electronic orchestra as a sound canvas, Glenn Meade composes "maximalist" music: complex and dynamic works for a large synthesizer orchestra. Utilizing more than 40 different synthesizers, samplers, and audio processors, and frequently combining acoustic instruments he creates beautiful timbres and powerful musical statements. A master of electronic instruments, Glenn achieves sounds that reflect all the breadth and nuance of a skilled virtuoso. They are then fused together in compositions that are symphonic in scope, with strong melodies, chromatic textures, and energetic percussion. Complex and engaging, the compositions vary dramatically -- from those with blistering speed and intensity to those with slow grandeur and haunting melodies.
