Hugh Lobel

A Texas native, Hugh takes his greatest inspiration from the dichotomy that exists between large localized concentrations of humanity and the surrounding miles of open land. His music often acts as a reflection on society and its repercussions, both on the land that it consumes, and the positive and negative effects of "culture" on the human psyche.

Hugh's exploration for voice and meaning in music has led him to compose for choir, orchestra, small and large chamber ensembles, solo instruments, rock bands, electronics, and combination electronics and instruments. His music has been performed by the Ethel String Quartet, the University of Houston Concert Chorale, the AURA New Music Ensemble, among others.

Recent performances include a reading by the string section of the UT orchestra, a choreographed performance of a work for Violin and Electronics on the Ears, Eyes, and Feet concerts; and a performance for Timpani and electronics at the Boston Conservatory.

Hugh received his undergraduate from the University of Houston in the spring of 2009. Before beginning his Masters studies at UT in the fall of 2009, Hugh studied composition with David Ashley White, Rob Smith, Eric McIntyre, Ken Booker, and Troy Wayne. At UT, Hugh has studied with Yevgeniy Sharlat and Russell Pinkston; he begins studies with Dan Welcher in the Fall.
