Robert Carl's music reflects a fascination with sound, and it draws listeners in through its unique timbres, orchestration, and juxtapositions. His music also posseses an incredible sense of timing, proportion, harmonic progression, and motivic development.
Carl studied at Yale, Penn, and the University of Chicago, working with teachers such as Xenakis, Jolas, Shapey, Crumb, and Rochberg. His music has been performed worldwide at venues such as Carnegie Recital Hall, Alice Tully Hall, IRCAM, and Orchestra Hall in Chicago. He has received prizes and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Tanglewood, NACUSA, the American Chamber Symphony, and most recently, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, which awarded him a Charles Ives Fellowship and a Copland Award.
Currently, Carl is chair of the composition department and director of the computer music studio at the Hartt School
of Music. He also directs the Extension Works new music ensemble and frequently writes on new music for Fanfare.
