Paul SanGregory


Paul SanGregory’s music has been performed across the globe, not only in North America, Taiwan and China, but also in Japan and other Asian countries, Western Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. It has been broadcast and discussed on radio in Taiwan, on NPR affiliated radio stations in the continental US and Hawaii as well as on Hong Kong Radio, Radio New Zealand Classic and in Europe. Recordings of his works are available on CDs produced by Navona Records (Parma Recordings), Lumiere, Capstone Records, Leyerle Publications, Taiwan Composers Association, ShineCreativity co., and Early Music Society Taiwan.

Stylistically, he takes an eclectic approach to technique, often combining more recent compositional techniques and processes with elements of blues, jazz, Chinese music, or even earlier Western music, yet folds them into a consistent and unique musical personality. His music is harmonically colorful, clearly stated, rhythmically and texturally varied, and develops an intuitively flexible musical flow over deeper structures and logic.

After graduating from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, Mr. SanGregory served briefly on the music composition and theory faculties at the University of Indianapolis and the University of Toledo. He then taught theory and composition for many years at National Kaohsiung Normal University, National Sun Yat-Sen University and National Pingtung University in southern Taiwan. During those years, he was also coach, conductor and composer for NKNU's Contemporary Chamber Ensemble. Currently, he is an Associate Professor of Music Theory and Composition at National Kaohsiung Normal University, and serves on the board of directors for the Asian Composers League’s Taiwan Section and The Taiwan Composers Association.
