Biography
Gayle Young is a Canadian composer, performer, instrument designer, curator, and author. Her music and sound installations include a wide variety of sound sources, from electronic and orchestral instruments, to found stone and wood. In the late 1970s she developed notational systems and designed musical instruments to facilitate explorations in unusual tunings. She continues to combine her interests in tuning and soundscape by recording environmental noise of highways, railways, rivers, and ocean shorelines through tuned tubing. Young has authored the biography of Hugh Le Caine (1914-1977) the foremost Canadian inventor of electronic instruments. She has written extensively about sound exploration, bringing attention to the exploration and experience of sound, and edited Musicworks Magazine for many years.
