Biography

Bruce Hamilton (b. 1966) composes and performs music in a variety of genres. He has performed as a percussionist, improviser, and electronic musician for over 25 years. His music is published by Non Sequitur Music and can be heard on the Albany, Amaranth, and/OAR, blank space, Capstone, Ilse, [ink | fuel], Memex, Phill, SEAMUS, Spectropol, split-notes, Three Legs Duck and Mark labels.

Hamilton's creative output is eclectic, exploring multiple styles and genre hybrids. He has received honors, awards and commissions from ALEA III, AMC, ASCAP, PAS, Barlow Endowment, Carbondale Community Arts, Indiana University, Jerome Foundation, National Society of Arts and Letters, Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Whatcom Symphony, Russolo-Pratella Foundation, and SEAMUS. Recent performances of his music have included those at the NWEAMO Festival, ICMC, Friends of Rain, Electronic Music Midwest, JMU Contemporary Music Festival, and the Percussive Arts Society International Convention.

His recent work Stamino-sosti was premiered by Exit 9 Percussion Group in May 2008 and a composer-supervised recording is available on all the major digital outlets. He is a frequent contributor to the ImprovFriday and Society for Shorty New Music online communities. Over the past seven years Hamilton has performed laptop-based electroacoustic music under various monikers at the Decibel Festival, Hempfest, Sonarchy Radio, and other venues around the Pacific Northwest. Compulse, his most recent full-length album (as Skiks), was released on the split-notes netlabel in October 2011.

A graduate of Indiana University (BM, MM, DM), Hamilton is Associate Professor of Music at Western Washington University, where he teaches music theory, composition, and directs the electroacoustic music studio (WWEAMS). He is a co-organizer of the Bellingham Electronic Arts Festival, a board member of Make.Shift and the Washington Composers Forum, and runs the Spectropol netlabel. Hamilton lives in Bellingham with composer Lesley Sommer and their son Miles.
