Stephen Gibson


Stephen Gibson (b.1957) has an eclectic and wide-ranging compositional output. It encompasses symphonic and chamber music as well as music theatre and opera. After developing a unique algorithmic method of composition in his earlier pieces such as Stomp, he has gone on to embrace minimalism and folk-based influences in his pursuit to develop a more accessible style. That led him to be shortlisted in the 1997 BBC Masterprize Composers Competition with his work Spirit of Youth.
