Since launching his musical career in 2001 by conducting at the Sydney Opera House, American-born composer Douglas Gibson has built an eclectic and accomplished body of work which spans several mediums and genres. His oeuvre contains compositions for classical music ensembles, dance, theatre and digital art installations, as well as film soundtracks and pieces for corporate projects.
Describing himself as a musical storyteller, Douglas has weaved his musical tales in North America, Europe and Australia with the likes of the Phoenix Symphonies, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Kiev Philharmonic, and other talented musicians from around the globe, including members of the New York Philharmonic.
Douglas Gibson continues his storytelling today in New York City, actively composing and producing, in addition to acting as an orchestrator for numerous projects. In fact, he recently made his Carnegie Hall debut with his work The Pearl Divers, which Anthony Aibel of the New York Concert Review called “remarkably exotic.”
