Hi everyone, and welcome to IMSLP! My name is Gesamtkunstwerk. I was a librarian at the Sibley Music Library at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York (reserves and recordings). I was also an undergraduate student at Eastman with majors in composition and piano and a minor in theory. I have four years of experience in music librarianship thus far, and it was my privilege to contribute to the Petrucci Music Library through my involvement with the ongoing Sibley Mirroring Project.
I am a professional musician, composer, arranger, orchestrator, performer, theorist, musicologist, conductor, pianist, violinist/violist, multi-instrumentalist, singer, actor, playwright, director, educator, librarian, historian, technician, and polymath. I write and create music for film, theatre, television, video games, contemporary media, etc.
