Talented Tuesday: Jonathan David Barlow-Composer

June 16, 2015

Guitarist Jonathan Barlow is inspired by the music he hears in everyday life. Instead of arranging his compositions for an orchestra, he uses sounds of household objects to fulfill the roles of traditional instruments and often alters the tone of his guitar by playing the instrument in combination with bobby pins, wine glasses, and even his daughter’s toys. Listeners may also notice the sounds of pages turning, hitting cushions, whistling, lap drumming, humming and striking the guitar. This music is ambient and melodic with classical undertones balanced by simple forms and inviting sonorities
