Andrew Culver (composer)
Andrew Culver (born August 30, 1953) is a composer whose works have included chamber and orchestral music, electronic and computer music, sound sculpture and music sculpture, film, lighting, text pieces, and installations. He performs concerts with sound sources of his own invention that are based on the tensegrity structural principle as elaborated by Buckminster Fuller, a lifelong influence.
Culver worked for 11 years with John Cage, helping to realize his compositional and poetic works and direct his operas and installations.
Culver's largest work is Ocean 1—133 (1994, 2006), the orchestral component of Ocean, which was conceived by John Cage and Merce Cunningham, with choreography by Merce Cunningham, electronic music by David Tudor, and design by Marsha Skinner.
