Wyman Brantley


Wyman Brantley works with patterns of compressed air produced by surfaces and circuits. He is an instrumentalist and composer working primarily in digital recording and live performance.
His work is currently focused in the following areas (these categories are not strict and are primarily based on intent):
  • electro-acoustic "free improvisation" (e.g., the lineage of players historically related to record labels like Incus (U.K.) FMP (Germany) etc.) using guitar, tenor and soprano saxophones, software, and electronics
  • software-based instrument environments
  • sound collages mixing field recordings and instrumentation
  • compositions using alternative notation and instructions
