Biographical Sketch
Jack Smith is a composer and bassist currently studying at Central Michigan University. His music is very eclectic, ranging from a drone piece scored for a full orchestra to a microtonal piece for bass quintet. Quote from his SoundCloud page: "I write the kind of music that I like listening to. At the moment I'm just exploring the many different styles I can create. I enjoy it, I hope you do too."
