Gayle Young is a Canadian composer, musician, and author. Her music and sound installations include a wide variety of sound sources, from electronic and orchestral instruments to found stone and wood. In the late 1970s she developed notational systems and designed musical instruments to facilitate explorations in unusual tunings, and since 1993 has used multiple lengths of tuned tubing in outdoor sound installations. She continues to combine her interests in tuning and soundscape by recording environmental noise of highways, railways, rivers, and ocean shorelines through tuned tubing. Her 2017 CrossWaves uses underwater hydrophone recordings enhanced by electroacoustic processing.
