Cuomo has composed for concert and theatrical stages, television and film. His expressive musical language, with its arresting juxtapositions of sound and style, is a natural outgrowth of his eclectic background and training. He became a professional guitarist while still in his teens, alternating years of college — studying jazz, world music and ethnomusicology at Wesleyan University in Connecticut and then jazz guitar at the University of Miami in Florida — with years on the road playing in jazz, pop and funk bands.
He also performs as a guitarist with his band, playing jazz interpretations of his film and television work at venues including Birdland, The Knitting Factory and others. He has lectured widely, at institutions including New York University, Wesleyan University (CT), University of Miami (FL), University of California at San Diego, Hunter College, Hofstra University, The Asia Society (NY), the University of Memphis and the Rubin Museum (NY). His compositions are published by Schott Music. douglasjcuomo.com
