Don Slepian

Profile:
(from website, 2013)

Don Slepian, Neoclassical Electronic Keyboard Concert Soloist, combines unique skills in music and electronics with a lifetime of improvised keyboard music performance. Working in Renaissance, Baroque, and Romantic genres, he performs original classically-styled music on computer instruments of his own design.

"His music is already at the level of sonic and musical integration which few achieve -- simultaneously stimulating and effervescent and soothing and profound." --- "Hearts of Space" Music Guide

Born into a scientific family, Slepian showed both musical and technical talent early in life. In 1968, he programmed computers and built electronic music circuitry, sculpting sound with classic electronic music studio tape techniques. Starting in 1972, he was a tester on the early internet as a member of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). While being a Synthesizer Soloist with the Honolulu Symphony, he was Music Director for Honolulu Theater For Youth, and ARP Synthesizer Sales Rep for Hawaii. As a true pioneer in electronic music, he has been presented by WNYC's “New Sounds” show in New York's Lincoln Center, by the French Ministry of Culture for a week-long residency at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and by the Karen Baptist Church for performances in the refugee camps at the border of Burma and Thailand. He currently webcasts from his studio in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. He is President of Local 577, American Federation of Musicians and Music Minister at All Souls Christian Center of East Stroudsburg, PA.

Husband of Judy Slepian.
