Member Spotlight

Gavin Chuck

Gavin Chuck

A native of Jamaica, Gavin grew up in a very musical culture and was exposed to a variety of music from a young age. Gavin sang in the boys’ choir and pursued classical piano, but was also surrounded with reggae and Jamaican folk music on a daily basis.

It wasn’t until he came to the US for a two-year stint at an international school in New Mexico that Gavin fully realized his affinity for music. He originally intended to pursue a career in computer science, but an assignment to write a piece of music sparked his interest and eventually led him to pursue multiple degrees in music theory and composition.

Gavin puts most of his creative energy these days into his work as Managing Director of Alarm Will Sound fueled by his passion to create a cultural space for contemporary music and living composers. But he also makes time for an occasional Scrabble game—only the real deal, though, none of these knock-offs like Words With Friends! He makes a tough competitor having memorized all the 2-letter words.
