Phil Acimovic is a composer, gamelan musician, and sound installation artist. He teaches music theory at Smith College.

I compose quiet music, often slow, as an antidote to the unnatural pace of modern life. I studied composition at the Hartt School, Tufts University, and UC Davis with many fine teachers including Kurt Rohde, Sam Nichols, John McDonald, Ken Steen, and David Macbride. I also studied Javanese Gamelan in Central Java with Bp. Wakidi Dwidjomartono,Bp. Darsono Hadiraharjo, and several other prominent Javanese musicians. I am a member of Gamelan Laras Tentrem in Boston and the Smith College Gamelan.

I've created and collaborated on several sound installations, notably Speaking of Sound, 

project documenting meaningful sound memories, and The Lake Tahoe Sonification Project, a collaborative effort translating weather data from Lake Tahoe into sound.
