Trevor Bača was born outside Los Angeles in 1975. His concerns as a composer include lost and secret texts; broken and dismembered systems; sorcery, divination and magic; and the effects, action and beauty of light. Bača’s music has been played in the US, Europe and Japan, with recent performances in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Barcelona, Huddersfield, Lyon and elsewhere. Bača’s music has been anthologized as part of Notations 21, edited by Theresa Sauer, and Bača’s scores have been exhibited as art at the Chelsea Gallery in New York City and at the Hutchins Gallery on Long Island. Recent lecture engagements at the New England Conservatory (NEC); University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland; the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique / Musique (IRCAM) in Paris; the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Lyon; the Stuttgart Musikhochschule; Stanford University; the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); and the University of California campuses at San Diego (UCSD), Santa Barbara (UCSB) and Santa Cruz (UCSC). Bača is now a PhD candidate at Harvard University studying with Hans Tutschku and Chaya Czernowin.
