Gil Dori is an avid composer, interested in interactive electronic music, indeterminacy, graphic notation, proportional procedures, and Jewish music.
After graduating with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Arizona State University, Dr. Dori is currently giving guest lectures, delivering workshops, and having his pieces performed internationally. His music has been featured on festivals and conferences such as Sound and Music Computing, SEAMUS National Conference, MUSLAB, New York City Electroacoustic Music Festivals, Balance-Unbalance, and Explore!.
At ASU, where he also received his Master of Music degree, Dr. Dori taught a Jewish music class, served as president of the Society of Composers, Inc. student chapter, and co-directed the Laptop Orchestra of Arizona State. He holds a Bachelors of Arts degree from Haifa University, Israel, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude.
Dr. Dori was also the artistic director and curator of the concert series Can There Be Music After Auschwitz?, which featured live performances of works that were written during the Holocaust, and of compositions that were created in response to it. This series was made possible through a grant Dr. Dori received from the Schwartz Scholars Fund, in partnership with the Arizona Jewish Historical Society, and the Tempe Public Library.
Oded Zehavi, Garth Paine, and Glenn Hackbarth are among Dr. Dori's primary composition teachers, as well as Kotoka Suzuki, who chaired Dr. Dori's D.M.A. Committee.
