Jeff Sabol's music, rich, colorful and vibrant, is influenced by a diverse array of sources and finds an audience with both the most experienced musician and the most casual listener. His compositions balance expressive solo melodies and grand harmonic textures, along with soothing pulses and complex, striking rhythmic gestures. His computer music, both fixed media and with live processing, is frequently a vehicle for meditation.
Jeff’s pieces are often inspired by intense and emotional personal experiences. His latest acoustic piece, White Mirror for orchestra, deals with the aftermath of heartbreak and the choices made in its wake. See Sharply in the Dark for clarinet and live electronics is a tribute to calm late-night meditations; Five Seasons for two pianos tells a story of uncertainty and self-discovery during a year-long hiatus from university life.
Jeff is currently based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Outside of composition, he is also an active and dedicated choral singer. He currently performs with the College-Conservatory of Music Chamber Choir, along with the choir of St. Peter in Chains Cathedral, located in downtown Cincinnati.
