“My job: To make humans more human”

“At the heart of my craft is finding power in the faintest of voices, fragility in the surest of sounds, eternity in shortest of phrases and transformation from the simple act of listening as time passes; to create materials for the self-expression of others, to shine light in the darkest of places and times, to affirm the dignity and beauty in each of us and to see each of us, in each other.”

BRIEF BIO

MICHAEL GREBLA

COMPOSER

Western Australia | New York City

READ MORE

Spreading music described as “a testament to the universal strength and endurance of the human spirit” by Cut-Common Magazine, Michael is an international award-winning emerging composer from Western Australia based in New York City. With a deep conviction for the role music play as a unifying mechanism in society, constructing identity and building community, he endeavours to create meaningful and inclusive cultural experiences, bridging tradition and the present through his music. In recent years his works have dealt with ideas of journey, displacement, transience, and spirituality, offering his own deeply introspective expression and examination of the human experience.
