Mike Krzyzaniak, composer

Michael Krzyzaniak is a composer of cutting edge art music. He began studying both piano and classical guitar as a child, and composed his first piece in the second grade. He received a Bachelor's degree in composition from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he was awarded a Robert Fink Scholarship for Music Theory, as well as an academic grant to record his first album. Currently, Mr. Krzyzaniak resides in Santa Barbara, California where he owns and operates an electronic music studio called Orphean Sculptures, where he continually composes, produces and records his own music and the music of others. He is a tenor in the acclaimed choir Quire of Voyces, plays guitar, bass, and piano in the band The Right Hand, and plays Djembe in the African drumming ensemble Dancing Drum. As a composer, he is engaged in ongoing collaborations with the acclaimed flautist Ritchie Gonzales, as well as with the tenor O.H. Lee. Michael Krzyzaniak's ballet for orchestra and percussion called Misogyny of Eros was a flop. His album of Schubert Songs transcribed for guitar and voice was released by Criminal Soul records earlier this year.
