Multi-instrumentalist/composer, Jacky Ligon (b.1962) began composing with microtonal scales in 1984, and is an avid scale designer today. He has a background in electronic music and audio engineering, has composed for theatre and independent films, and played in the microtonal free-form improvisation group "Silent Tongues" 1990-95, where he performed on a midi wind controller, keyboards and percussion. Currently he resides in North Carolina, and is exploring the compositional possibilities of microtonal music creation with computers and hard disk recording, where acoustic and electronic timbres cohabitate. Compositional interests include myriad microtonal scales and polymetrical musical structures.
