Called ‘the quintessential modern composer’ by the London Independent, Austin-based composer-bandleader-improviser Graham Reynolds creates, performs, and records music for film, theater, dance, rock clubs and concert halls with collaborators ranging from Richard Linklater and Jack Black to DJ Spooky and Ballet Austin. He recently scored Where’d You Go Bernadette, with Cate Blanchett; the Rude Mechs’ Stop Hitting Yourself, for Lincoln Center Theater; Ballet Austin’s Grimm Tales; Happy Jail for Netflix; and a multi-year commission from Ballroom Marfa, The Marfa Triptych. From improvised workshop series, small watering holes to large scale performances such as Mozart’s Requiem Undead, Reynolds’ touring offerings are extensive, adaptable, and include commissions and scores. His Creative Capital Award-winning project, Pancho Villa From a Safe Distance, is a bilingual cross-border opera about the enigmatic general, legendary bandit, and hero of the Mexican Revolution, providing a lens into Mexico, the border, and the relationship between communities of both nations. Other touring options include an original live score for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lodger, the jazz-based but far reaching Golden Arm Trio, the Marfa Country & Western Big Band Suite, as well as commissions, private performances, workshops, or master classes, whether as a solo artist or a group.
