Composer & Electronic Setup

Still an Arizonan at heart, Caleb Westby is an Oklahoma-based composer who holds a Bachelor
of Music degree in music education from Northern Arizona University as well as a Master of 
Music from the University of Oklahoma. Presently a doctoral student at the University of
Oklahoma, he has had the pleasure of learning from several great composers; among them
Marvin Lamb, Bob Thurston, and Michael Markowski. His influences include many prominent
modern composers in both the wind band and choral realms, but his music is also heavily
inspired by video game soundtracks both old and new.
