George Lewis

George Lewis is a jazz trombone player and composer.

In addition to his own recordings, he has recorded or performed with Anthony Braxton, Roscoe Mitchell, Conny Bauer and others. He is a contemporary and colleague of trombonist Ray Anderson. He also has a feature segment on Laurie Anderson's album Big Science.

Lewis has long been active in creating and performing with interactive computer systems, most notably his software called Voyager, which “listens to” and reacts to live performers. Lewis gave an invited keynote lecture and performance at NIME-06, the sixth international conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression, which was held at IRCAM, Paris, in June 2006.

He is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) and a graduate of Yale University, where he was tapped by the The Skull and Bones. He has served as a professor at Columbia University in New York City since 2004, having previously taught at the University of California, San Diego.
