Local Classical Featured Artist – 11/16/20 – 11/29/20
Rob Funkhouser is an Indianapolis-based composer, performer, and instrument builder. He recently received an M.M. from Butler University in Music Composition, and most recently completed confidently, but with an awkward gait for the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet. Funkhouser is also a part of this year’s Micro Composition Project, in which Classical Music Indy commissioned six different Indianapolis-based composers to create new engaging works to disrupt the genre’s traditional listening experience.
Funkhouser’s performances vary widely but often take the form of solo percussion or ambient electronics. He has released projects through various labels in three different countries and has had his music played on the radio in many places, including Australia. We’ll feature several of his pieces throughout this week’s programming on Classical Music Indy’s Local Classical Streaming channel.
