Gordon Green is a composer whose recent work takes advantage of computer technology to create unique musical statements that blend synthetic and acoustic instrumentation. His 1994 album Arrangements and Variations for Digital Piano explored a new realm of piano music made possible by the computer-controlled piano. Dense washes of notes and thick layers of counterpoint were used to create fresh transcriptions of familiar pieces for this new instrument. The 1996 album Impossible Christmas applied the same techniques to a wider range of instrumentation. LightCycles, his latest recording, took advantage of the spontaneity made possible by MIDI by capturing improvisations then using these as the basis for rich electronic orchestrations.
Green is also a painter whose paintings have been exhibited widely in New York and New England. He was awarded the 1995-6 W.K. Rose Fellowship in the Creative Arts, and has also received fellowships and awards from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Ragdale, and the Millay Colony, and others.
