Both major composers and minor composers are included. And we include Witt alum John Chowning (BM, ’59), “a pioneer in computer music” (New York Times, 2006) whose compositions “are among the most beautiful and sophisticated achievements in computer music” (Oxford Companion to Music, 2002).
Composer of the Day was designed and developed jointly by Professor of Music Daniel Kazez and his son Ben Kazez, who is president and founder of Michigan-based mobile travel application startup Mobiata. The biographies were created by a team of Wittenberg music majors, faculty, and alums.
