MARK BULLER | COMPOSER

Site under construction (temporary pageholder).

The music of composer Mark Buller has been performed around the country and across four continents, in venues as varied as Carnegie Hall, the Menil Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and Movimento (Munich), as well as at such events as the highSCORE Festival (Italy), the First Electronic Music Festival of Cyprus, and the Porto Alegre (Brazil) Contemporary Music Festival. Since moving to Houston in 2011 to begin work on his Doctor of Musical Arts degree, Buller has spent two years in the Da Camera of Houston Young Artist Program, and has composed for a wide variety of organizations: HGOco (which commissioned an opera, The Pastry Prince, as well as a dozen art songs), the Houston Symphony, and Da Camera. His third string quartet was the winner of the Sarofim Composition Award, and his choral work Sicut Cervus won the Vanguard Voices Composition Competition; it has since been published by Hinshaw Music. Current projects include a second wind quintet for a performance at the Grant Teton Music Festival, a second opera, and a work for string orchestra. Buller is a DMA candidate at the University of Houston, where he has studied with Marcus Maroney and Rob Smith.
