Henry Kucharzyk (b1953)

Henry Kucharzyk (b. 1953) is a Toronto-based composer and conductor, as well as a performer on piano and synthesizer. Through his involvement with contemporary music ensembles such as Arraymusic, the Canadian Electronic Ensemble and the Esprit Orchestra, Kucharzyk has been at the forefront of new music development in Canada. His composition Some Assembly Required was commissioned by the University of Toronto Wind Symphony and completed in 1998. This piece makes extensive use of aleatoric, or improvised elements. The order of the movements can be decided by the performers, and within the individual movements, there are sections that allow considerable room for decisions by individual performers—hence the title “some assembly required”. This compositional approach gives an unusual degree of spontaneity to each performance, and even to recording sessions.
