Jazz pianist turned electroacoustic laptopist, Travis West is a multidisciplinary composer-performer and life long learner. Fascinated by algorithms, instruments and the soundscapes of everyday life, Travis is interested in composing musical interactions and interacting with musical compositions. His research explores electronic music performance from the lowest level bits and bytes of digital musical instrument design up to the most abstract structural control over compositional algorithms. His compositions have been performed in festivals and conferences across North America such as the Young Songwriters Intensive in Calgary and N_SEME 2016 in Oklahoma. Travis is currently studying his BFA at Concordia University’s department of music with his major in Electroacoustic Studies.
