Alec J Radecki is a composer currently based Kansas City. Alec's music is pervaded by a sentimental, postmodern cynicism that belies his contradictory romantic and expressionist influences. He writes for a wide variety of ensembles, ranging from full orchestra to solo piano, including art songs and electro-acoustic music. Alec is currently enrolled in the D.M.A. Composition program at University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he studies with Chen Yi, Zhou Long, Paul Rudy, and Yotam Haber. A native of South Bend, IN, Alec received his Bachelor and Master of Music in Composition at Indiana University South Bend, where he studied under Jorge Muñiz and John Mayrose. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science.
Alec’s works have been performed by the Euclid Quartet and the Indiana University South Bend Philharmonic, of which he was a long-time member. He also performed with the university's Audio-Visual Collective. He believes art should be used to call attention to injustices wherever and whenever possible; he is a vocal advocate for diversity and against elitism in the performing arts.
Alec currently teaches undergraduate musicianship classes at IU South Bend.
