Self-Portrait

BY GRANT CUTLER

 


GRANT CUTLER is an American composer and multimedia artist living in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up in South Dakota, Cutler’s early experiences shaped an inclination to collect, experiment, and make from scratch—evident today in his sound and visual works, built from intricate sampling, layering, and distortion of recorded moments. Over the last decade, Cutler has composed work for award-winning stage performances and films, spanning the genres of modern-classical, experimental, and ambient. Cutler’s recent work explores the phenomena surrounding acts of recollection through experimental sound and kinetic visuals representing memory concurrently forming and dissolving.
