Michael J. Schumacher


Composer Michael J. Schumacher creates electronic sound installations that use multiple speakers to emit sound frequencies. The artist composes for computer-manipulated sound structures and live improvised music. These works are often exhibited in empty galleries or will take place as a live performance. Schumacher was born in Washington, D.C., and studied music at Indiana University and the Juilliard School of Music. The artist has worked with countless composers and musicians and has exhibited with The Kitchen, the Queens Museum and PS1 in New York. He frequently performs at the Diapason Gallery, New York’s only sound art venue. In a recent performance with Diapason, the artist presented “Room Piece” as a multi-channel sound installation that continuously shifts the sounds in the room using the listener as the main axis point.
