Kyle Eugene Gann is an American professor of music, critic and composer born in Dallas, Texas. As a critic for The Village Voice and other publications he has been a supporter of progressive music including such Downtown movements as postminimalism and totalism. As a composer his works fall generally into three categories: microtonal works in just intonation, involving electronics; rhythmically complex works for Disklavier; and piano and ensemble music whose rhythmic complexity tends to be milder and within a single tempo framework.Of particular importance in most of his music is the concept of repeating loops, ostinatos, or isorhythms of different lengths going out of phase with each other; the idea leads to simultaneous layers of different, mutually prime tempo relationships in his Disklavier and electronic works, and is used in a less obvious structural way in his live-ensemble music
