Jacob Sandridge, composer

As a composer, installation artist, and performer, Jake Sandridge is interested in creating both concert works and non-linear installation and improvisation pieces for acoustic and electronic media. His creative work centers on themes of memory, community, nature, and acceptance, with a strong interest in works that allow for audience and performer agency. Recent projects that engage with these ideas include work with performer-computer improvisation systems, and a temporary interactive sound installation titled Each step, in which participants explore a space where the user’s movement has a unique effect on the synthesized sound. Jake is pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
