The music of Michael Torke has been called “some of the most optimistic, joyful and thoroughly uplifting music to appear in recent years” (Gramophone). Hailed as a “vitally inventive composer” (Financial Times) and “a master orchestrator whose shimmering timbral palette makes him the Ravel of his generation” (New York Times), Michael Torke has created a substantial body of works in virtually every genre.

In this episode Michael goes deep on synesthesia, intellectual pursuits, writing music for self-glory, being debt free, process, failure, commissions, and more!
