Jason Thorpe Buchanan’s work has been described by critics and leading composers as “sharply-edged,” “shimmering,” “symphonic,” and “ambitious.” He is the founder of Melos Music, spending 2010-11 in Hamburg, Germany on a Fulbright Fellowship at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater as a visiting scholar. He currently serves as assistant conductor for Eastman’s Musica Nova Ensemble with conductor Brad Lubman, as well as co-founder/conductor of the [Switch~ Ensemble], and staff member in the Eastman Computer Music Center as a Ph.D. candidate at the Eastman School of Music where he currently studies with Carlos Sánchez Gutiérrez. Upcoming compositional engagements include works for Alarm Will Sound, the electroacoustic [Switch~ Ensemble], Iktus Percussion in NYC, and a concerto for hornists Jeff Nelsen and Michael Walker.
