Jacob Sandridge, composer

Composer and sound artist Jacob Sandridge creates music as a method of expressing themes of memory, transformation, nature, and comfort. He understands art as a unique space that allows for the suspension of disbelief, where audiences and performers can experiment with the juxtaposition of ideas that might originate from dissimilar places. Recent projects include Each step, a sound installation that was awarded the title of “best student submission” at the 2019 International Computer Music Conference at New York University; and a work for piano and interactive electronics, to be presented at the Studio 300 Digital Music and Art Festival at Transylvania University. Mr. Sandridge is pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
