Composer William J. Lackey found his love of sound and motion on club dance floors at an early age. William’s continued exploration of sound and the movement of sound can be heard in the form of concert works, installations, theatrical pieces, and on the dance floor. William serves as Vice President of Programs at the American Composers Forum. William comes to the Forum with an extensive background in arts management, concert/event production, community service, and teaching. Selected as a McKnight Visiting Fellow in 2011, William collaborated with several communities in Hector, Minnesota, to develop a multimedia work that explored the history of farming in that part of the state. William’s experience in Hector gave William a new perspective on how composers can find interesting ways to engage community.
