Guy Rauscher (Komposition)

Guy’s musical education began in his youth as a piano and later a flute player. Afterwards, he studied composition privately while at the same time pursuing a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Philosophy from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Later, after some years in the world of high-tech, his musical education continued in the form of a B.Mus. in music composition from the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, Tel-Aviv University, where he studied with J. Bardanashvili. There he received several scholarships and won the first prize in the school’s composition competition.

As a composer, he is interested in the musically and artistically-meaningful combination of music with ideas and materials from mathematics and the world of numbers. This combination has the potential of exposing the natural aspect of both of these intimately-related worlds. Additional interests within composition include re-evaluation and re-interpretation of the music of the past, and the expression of a holistic, Buddhism-influenced worldview.
