Faculty Profile

Bryce Cannell

Bryce Cannell received his Ph.D. in composition and theory in spring 2017 from the University of California, Davis. A native of Central California, Cannell received his Master and Bachelor of Arts degrees in music composition from California State University, Fresno. His dissertation focuses on Anton Webern’s Fünf Canons nach lateinischen Texten, op. 16 and how Renaissance compositional practices may have played a role in the composer’s adoption of the twelve-tone technique. In 2015, Cannell was awarded a Margrit Mondavi Fellowship to travel to the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, Switzerland, to examine the surviving sketches of this work. As a composer, Cannell has been commissioned by the Impetus Percussion Quartet, the Orpheus Chamber Ensemble, and Oakland-based pianist Anne Rainwater. His music has been acknowledged with awards from the Society of Composers Inc., the National Association of Composers/USA, and the Institut für Musik der Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg.

In addition to his scholarly pursuits, Cannell enjoys working as a freelance music typesetter, all things cartography, and spending time with his wife, Jen and their German shepherd, Gose (aka Goose).

Dr. Cannell is currently on the faculty of the Department of Music, California State University, Fresno.
