About | Cory


Award-winning composer, musician, producer


Cory Gabel is an award-winning composer, pianist and recording artist, creating original music for dance, film, theater and solo projects. Cory’s music career began in Los Angeles, where he was the lead vocalist and guitarist for the alternative rock band Limestone Rome from 1994-2000. In 2001, he turned to the piano for the first time, and has since released 3 post-classical solo piano albums, One RoadAlabaster Sky and Paso in 2001, 2006 and 2013, respectively.


His classical and modern rock influences converge in his original scores for contemporary dance and film, where he is often likened to composers & artists such as Trent Reznor, Philip Glass, Sigur Rós and others. He has released soundtracks to 2 full-length modern dance pieces, The Casket Girls in 2009, and Water Wars in 2012.


2015 is already on pace to be a prolific year. Cory is collaborating once again with Sonia Plumb Dance Company on their new production of The Odyssey. He’s also writing the score for Dean Lennert’s animated film “Dear Anna Olson” and plans to release new solo piano music as well.
