A versatile musician with interests ranging from classical repertoire to world musics, jazz, popular genres, and the avant-garde, TYLER JONES is a composer and conductor currently working in the American Southeast. Exploring intriguing rhythmic-metric structures and earthy, evocative colors, Tyler’s work is concerned with community, perspective, and sound behavior within a given space. His music has been reviewed as “intense” and “richly detailed.” Recent work includes a collaboration with the violinist Davis Brooks, who recorded Tyler’s five- movement suite Solitude for the solo album Early Musings: New Music for Violin, available on Navona Records.
Tyler holds a master’s degree in composition and a bachelor’s degree in music theory, both from The University of Alabama. His teachers at Alabama included Amir Zaheri, composition; Blake Richardson, conducting; Tim Feeney, percussion; and Thomas Robinson, music theory research and methods.
