Bailin has signed on to release a full album of his works, including two electronic pieces and three piano works (one for prepared piano) which PARMA will be recording. Also included on this album will be “Speak, Child,” an acoustic/electronic piece based on snippets of recordings made of Sidney’s then-infant son.
Composer, skydiver, martial artist, computer scientist, filmmaker, teacher, and philosopher Sidney
Sidney’s composing began at 6 years old when he wrote his first piece in 3-part counterpoint (although he could only play recorder at the time). He entered Juilliard when he was 15 to study piano and composition with Ania Dorfmann and Hall Overton. He then enrolled there as a college student at 18, studying with Roger Sessions and Otto Luening, before moving to Columbia University in pursuit of his interest in mathematics.

This will be Sidney’s first commercial release and will represent a wide range of style in both electronic and acoustic media. Stay tuned for more info on this exciting album (and be sure to pack your parachute)!
