Rylan Gleave Rylan Gleave Glasgow Rylan Gleave (b.1997) is a Glasgow-based composer and vocalist whose music addresses intersectional identity, re-contextualised natural situations, and quiet, furious resistance. His musical practice is inclusive, and involves mending the unfeigned gaps in his classical study with the healings of imaginative neuro-/ gender-divergent kinship. Re-emerging as a composer/performer, Rylan’s work explores the instrumental qualities of his late-breaking trans-masc voice through queer autoethnography, and autistic-specific notation. His music has been praised as ‘haunting’ by The Herald, and ‘rapturous’ by The Scotsman, who named him ‘One to Watch’ 2021, describing him as ‘one of the brightest lights in Scotland’s new music scene’. Rylan has recently graduated from an MMus Degree with Dr. Linda Buckley at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Composition prize and The Craig Armstrong Prize, after completing his BMus with David Fennessy, graduating with Honours of the First Class, The Dinah and Walter Wolfe Memorial Award, and The Kimie Composition Prize.
