Duane Pitre is an American avant-garde composer, performer, and sound artist. His work often focuses on chaos and discipline, site-specificity and alternate tuning schemes that utilize microtonality.
He has created works for various instrumentation configurations such as string orchestra, his own bowed harmonic-guitar ensemble, string/wind ensembles, as well as solo works for himself.
He has presented and performed his live works across the U.S., U.K., and Europe at spaces such as Café OTO, The Stone, Muziekhuis Utrecht, and ISSUE Project Room (where he was Artist In Residence for spring 2009).
