Joshua Penman has composed and produced music in many different worlds, the most important of which are: concert music, scores for commercials and documentaries, and Akara, the classical/world/electronic band he toured with. His music has been featured on NPR and PBS, played by seventeen orchestras, and performed at psychedelic electronic music festivals around the country. Joshua’s most personal music lives at the intersection of concert music, dance and electronic music, and various loose takes on world music. He is particularly inspired by Indian and Indonesian music, both of which he has performed. Joshua holds a doctorate in composition from the University of Michigan and studied Indian classical voice in Varanasi. He currently lives in San Francisco, where he works as a composer for a toy/game startup called Yujinko and as an engineer at a collaboration software startup called Asana.
CreArtBox is an award winning multidisciplinary music ensemble based in New York City led by flutist Guillermo Laporta and pianist Josefina Urraca and known for its merging of classical and contemporary music, with visual art, stunning stage design, and cutting-edge technology.
