Dexter Morrill (b1938)

Dexter Morrill was born in North Adams, Massachusetts. At the age of eight he began trumpet lessons with Peter Fogg and later studied with Irwin Shainman at Williams College. He entered Colgate University in 1956 and studied composition with William Skelton, and attended the first Lenox School of Jazz in 1957, having trumpet lessons with Dizzy Gillespie and arranging with William Russo. In 1960 Morrill began graduate studies at Stanford University and studied composition with Leonard Ratner and orchestration with Leland Smith. During 1962–4 he was a Ford Foundation Young Composer Fellow in University City, Missouri, and later taught at St John’s University in New York, which commissioned his Three Lyric Pieces for Violin, premièred by Ruggiero Ricci at Lincoln Center in 1969. Morrill studied composition with Robert Palmer in the late 1960s at Cornell, and wrote his dissertation on Darius Milhaud’s early polytonal music. Morrill returned to teach music at Colgate in 1969 and, in the early 1970s, established one of the first mainframe computer studios in the world, with help from colleagues at Stanford University. He returned to Stanford often to study computer music with John Chowning and Leland Smith, and spent a part of his time doing research on the analysis/synthesis of trumpet tones. Morrill is currently Professor Emeritus at Colgate. His computer music compositions have received performances in the United States, Canada, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Great Britain, Poland, the Czech Republic and most Western European
