Evan Losoya is a composer, pianist, and oboist from California's San Francisco Bay Area. He is a prolific composer of music for multimedia presentations, recitals, and film – including Silent movies. He's composed music for chamber and full orchestras in many styles -- both traditional and experimental.
His musical interests include the combination of minimalism and complexity, linguistic analysis as a compositional process, indeterminacy, and the interaction between performer and physical object.
Evan has served as the chairman of the Grand Arts Consortium since 2021, where he has composed and transcribed several film scores for the Grand Feature Film Orchestra (GFFO). Most recently, the GFFO performed his score for the 1928 silent comedy Steamboat Bill, Jr. starring Buster Keaton.
Evan received a BA in Music Composition from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. He's currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Composition at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University.
