Jeff Sabol (b. 1993) composes colorful, deeply emotional music that balances expressive melodies, rich harmonic textures, and complex, striking rhythms. Drawing from both Western classical and popular music, as well as his own life experiences, he finds an audience with both seasoned musicians and casual listeners. Recent highlights include Confiteor, an impassioned setting of the traditional Latin text for SATB chorus, cello and piano, and Synthetic Winter, a fixed media virtual soundscape created using only the Massive synthesizer.
Currently, Jeff is an Associate Instructor in music theory at Indiana University, where he studies composition with David Dzubay, and previously with Tansy Davies and P. Q. Phan, as well as computer music with Jeffrey Hass and John Gibson. He is also an experienced and prolific choral singer, having performed with IU’s contemporary vocal ensemble NOTUS, along with Cincinnati’s Vocal Arts Ensemble.
