Jack Dettling is a pianist, composer, and multimedia artist. He uses player pianos, traditional instruments, text, video, and a variety of electro-acoustic tools to create concert pieces, video works, and non-linear multimedia environments; he addresses the piano, music-making, tuning-systems, and visual iconographies as historical artifacts and investigates their potential for formal reconfiguration/innovation. He is a dedicated performer of old and new keyboard repertoire and has worked extensively with composers such as Elliott Carter, Michael Gordon, David Lang, Steve Reich, and Wolfgang von Schweinitz, among others. He studied piano performance and comparative literature at Mannes College (BS), contemporary piano performance at Manhattan School of Music (MM), and composition and performance at California Institute of the Arts (DMA). He lives, performs, and teaches in Los Angeles.
