A collection of recordings of compositions by American pianist and composer, Peter Gena. Gena received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D in musical composition from State University of New York at Buffalo and has studied with Lejaren Hiller and Morton Feldman. Gena often composes in the minimalist style of Steve Reich and Terry Riley but also has training in electronic music and has collaborated with geneticists, to develop methods of employing DNA sequences as the basis of musical compositions.
