Scott McIntyre studied French Horn at the Victorian College of the Arts in orchestral performance and composition from 1988-90 before he studied with Brenton Broadstock, graduating in 1993 with a Bachelor of Music in music composition from The University of Melbourne. During his time at Melbourne University he was acknowledged in 1991 with a Highest Commendation in the Paul Lowin Orchestral Award for his Symphony for Large Orchestra. He attended the National Orchestral Composers School in 1993; the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra performing 'Infinity Has No God' under the direction of David Porcelijn. With much experience in orchestral performance, he shows confident orchestration while adhering to strict architecture in his music. He is interested in the planned detail and development of melody and harmonies to create a modern polyphony that fuses his interest in medieval music through to orchestral music of the 20th and 21st centuries.
In 2008 he completed 'Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius', a double Percussion and Chamber Orchestra Concerto for Speak Percussion and his String Quartet No.2 (Yellow) for Silo String Quartet was performed in April 2009. His String Quartet No.1 was also performed at the Asian Composers League Festival 2009 in Tongyeong, South Korea.
In 2009, he completed his Masters Degree in Composition at the University Of Melbourne and is now currently doing his PhD in Composition at the University of Tasmania with the assistance of an Elite Scholarship. His music has been performed by Michael Kieran Harvey, Barrie Webb, Arditti String Quartet, Michael Lampard, Silo String Quartet and the Adelaide and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras.
