Phil Acimovic is a composer, sound artist, and gamelan musician living in
Easthampton, MA. He writes quiet, austere music for solo and chamber
ensembles. In 2018 he served as Artist-In-Residence at the Cold Hollow Sculpture Park in VT.
I compose quiet, slow music. I focus on abstract emotions, the quiet corners of the mind that are obstructed in our hyperactive world. My recent work is a set of solo pieces inspired by painters with whom I feel artistic kinship, Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko, and Agnes Martin. These pieces were written to balance or complement the disquietude of the Covid pandemic.
