Graham Reynolds - The Difference Engine: I. The Cogwheel Brain

Called “the quintessential modern composer” by the London Independent, Austin-based composer-bandleader-improviser Graham Reynolds creates, performs, and records music for film, theater, dance, rock clubs and concert halls. Heard throughout the world in films, TV, stage, and radio, he’s worked with collaborators ranging from Richard Linklater and Jack Black to DJ Spooky and Ballet Austin. He is a company member with the internationally acclaimed Rude Mechs theater collective, resident composer with Salvage Vanguard Theater and Forklift Danceworks, and Artistic Director of Golden Hornet, a commissioning and concert producing non-profit. He recently scored Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying”, featuring Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne, for Amazon Studios. His many accolades include a Creative Capital Award for “Pancho Villa From a Safe Distance”, a chamber opera created with librettists Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol (Mexico City) and director Shawn Sides (Rude Mechs), the final part of his decade long project, “The Marfa Triptych”.
