Jason Belcher

  • Graduate Student, Composition/Theory

I am a PhD candidate in Music Theory/Composition. I spent several years living in Boston, where I earned degrees from New England Conservatory in Contemporary Improvisation (BMus, 2010), and Composition (MMus 2012). My music generally deals with varying degrees of performer control, or the lack thereof. Before arriving in Pittsburgh, I lived in Vermont and New York, where I played with activist brass bands, and a variety of improvising musicians.
