Composer/Performer Randall Smith lives in pursuit of a creative practice that challenges categories and defies assumptions and expectations about genre, style traditions, and the foundations of music itself. Viewing music as a uniting and edifying force, Smith's interests chiefly lie in unusual and unexpected collaborations with musicians and artists of various disciplines and media as well as community experiences that challenge traditional concert formats and participant roles. 

Never one to shy away from the bizarre, Smith makes up one half of punk-classical duo Counterpoint Hangman, an ensemble that evades description at every turn, combining stylistically fluid spontaneity with edgy, experimental theatrics.  

Hobbies and extra-musical pursuits include cooking, reading everything in sight, learning languages, and Chinese martial arts.
