Based in San Francisco, Aaron Gervais enjoys frequent performances of his work by leading ensembles, presenters, and festivals in North America and Europe. He draws upon humor, quotation, pop music, and found materials to create work that spans the sombre to the slapstick, inspiring a range of critical reactions from “unique, unsettling” to “this is just really great fun” and “I cried tears of laughter.” His output focuses primarily on chamber music and opera but also includes orchestral music, live electronics, solo works, and music for theatre and dance.

Aaron receives a steady stream of commissions and performances by groups around the world, including the Nieuw Ensemble, the Knights Orchestra, G27 Orchestra, Ensemble Klang, and the London Sinfonietta. He has appeared on prominent festivals including Gaudeamus Music Week, the MATA Festival, and Other Minds. Aaron also blogs extensively, discussing issues facing classical music today. He holds degrees from the University of Toronto and UC San Diego.
