Biography of Scott Giles
I was born inside of music
and I compose my way out
into the tactile world.
Scott Giles is a composer and conductor who has written symphonies, concerti, string quartets, two operas and sonatas for numerous instruments as well as a host of other Classical, Jazz, and ethnic works. He was director of The August Ensemble for six years where, along with his own music he performed the great works of the classical composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Berlioz, Bartok, Ravel and others.
Dr. Giles also claims the great and rare honour of having a plaster bust (yes, plain white plaster, not even spray-painted gold) of himself in a music conservatory in Egypt. He has no idea why or how that occurred. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Scott Giles Poems
Bombs To My Chest
see the light outside my head the darkness of wet city streets. we all made sacrifices... i saw you.
Sitting, standing, Bathroom steam It's Hot
Bright, padded feet on hard wood. Tea, Civilized... Sounding rather exotic
Bombs To My Chest
see the light outside my head
the darkness of wet city streets.
we all made sacrifices...
i saw you.
strapping bombs to my soul's chest
getting all misty over
time that you can't talk about.
