Biography

Composer Scott Johnson has been a pioneering voice in the new relationship being forged between the classical tradition and the popular culture that surrounds it. A forerunner of today’s “postclassical” styles, he has played an influential role since the early 1980’s in the trend towards incorporating rock-derived instruments, electronics, and musical materials into traditionally scored compositions. His music has been presented worldwide, by performers including the Kronos Quartet, the Bang On A Can All-Stars, Alarm Will Sound, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and the American Composers Orchestra; and in recordings on the Nonesuch and Tzadik labels. Awards include fellowships from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Guggenheim Foundation, and a Koussevitsky award. Johnson has published articles and essays on contemporary music, and lectured at leading conservatories and universities, including San Francisco and Peabody Conservatories, New York University, The Manhattan School of Music, and Yale University.
