Greg Stuart is a percussionist from St. Paul, Minn., currently residing in Columbia, S.C. His work explores various alternative percussion techniques, including sustained friction, gravity-based sounds via small grains, sympathetic vibration and electronic instruments. Since 2006, Stuart has collaborated extensively with the composer Michael Pisaro, producing a large body of new music for percussion comprised of pieces that focus on the magnification of small sounds through recording and layering (An unrhymed Chord, A wave and waves, Ricefall (2), July Mountain, and the Hearing Metal series).
He has performed at many festivals and venues including MaerzMusik (Berlin), Amplify Festival (N.Y.C.), Gallery Kapleica (Ljubljana), Elastic Arts Foundation (Chicago), New Music Co-Op (Austin), Philadelphia Sound Forum, Sushi Performance and Visual Art (San Diego), MacPhail Center for Music (Minneapolis), and Conundrum Music Hall (West Columbia, S.C.), among others. He has recorded for such labels as Edition Wandelweiser, Gravity Wave, Cathnor, Engraved Glass and Presqu’île.
Stuart holds D.M.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of California, San Diego and a B.M. from Northwestern University. Stuart is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C. where he teaches music history, experimental music, percussion and runs the New Music Workshop.
