“These are the two major elements in my creative life, and much like glacial imagery and track titles suggest, here they erode and cut into each other to create fractured versions of their original musical identities to form new audio structures and landscapes.”
This electronic/acoustic exploration is a logical extension of Gureckis’ work in production (film, pop, TV) and his classical background (Yale School of Music, Philip Glass’ music assistant). He has worked extensively in film, pop, and concert music. Regardless of genre or medium, Gureckis brings a consistent aesthetic framework — one that bridges and erodes.
Recent film projects include the Warner Brothers/Amazon Studios adaptation of The Goldfinch (directed by John Crowley) out in 2019, the thriller Bloodline (2018), and Paul Dano’s Wildlife (featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan) with composer David Lang that premiered at Sundance 2018. Trevor worked on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo as a producer, and has had concert music performed by Minnesota Orchestra, American Brass Quintet, and many others.
