Cole is a guitarist, composer, improvisor, and songwriter, whose work deals with topics of memory, process, natural imagery, and perceptual extremes (of activity, of density, and their absences). He is a recent graduate of the New England Conservatory, where he studied Contemporary Improvisation, with a minor in Music Theory, and graduated as a member of Pi Kappa Lambda Honors Society. Earlier, he attended Oberlin College as a liberal arts student, where he took courses on jazz improvisation, South Indian rhythmic syllables, electronic music, mathematics, computer science, and environmental studies. As a performer, he has played in rock bands, jazz ensembles, free improvisation groups, and chamber groups. His current performance priority is a live set consisting of songs, guitar improvisations, and live electronics, combining songs from his debut EP, and his record-in-progress, “(t o r s o)”, with field recordings, live electronics, and guitar improvisations. As a composer, he has written for small and medium chamber and improvising ensembles, embracing varying degrees of compositional fixedness and openness.

He maintains an active performance schedule, with regular performances in the Boston area and tours in May 2017, May 2018, August 2018, January 2019, and August 2019.

His teachers have included composers Stratis Minakakis and Anthony Coleman; guitarists Joe Morris, Bob Thompson, Vic Juris, Paul Bollenback, and Bob Ferrazza; and improvisors Hankus Netsky, Carla Kihlstedt, and Eden MacAdam Somer. He has attended such programs as New Music On The Point (2018, Composition/Improvisation), the Silk Road Global Musician Workshop (Guitar, 2017), and Savannah Music Festival’s Acoustic Music Seminar (2016), where he was mentored by guitarists Julian Lage and Bryan Sutton.
