Phil Acimovic is a composer, gamelan musician, and sound installation artist.

I compose quiet music, often slow. I've been fortunate to work with musicians Chris Froh, Eric Zivian, Sarah Cahill, Chris Castro, John McDonald, and the Empyrean Ensemble. I was commissioned by the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble in 2018 for a piano duo, Reverent Murmurs

I studied composition at the Hartt School, Tufts University, and UC Davis with Kurt Rohde, Sam Nichols, John McDonald, Ken Steen, and David Macbride. I studied Javanese Gamelan in Central Java with Bp. Wakidi Dwidjomartono, Bp. Darsono Hadiraharjo, and several other prominent Javanese musicians. I'm a member of Gamelan Laras Tentrem in Boston and perform often with many gamelan ensembles in the northeast U.S.

I've created and collaborated on several sound installations, including 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.
