Wally Gunn (b. 1971) is a composer whose work makes use of patterns and processes, and sometimes utilises physical gesture and speech to heighten the theatricality of musical performance, creating music that is expressive and emotionally direct. His work often incorporates the extramusical themes of science and the natural world, as well as explorations of queer identity and experience.

Hailing from rural Australia, Wally first played in rock bands, then attended Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, before moving to New York to study with Julia Wolfe at Manhattan School of Music, and then pursue a PhD at Princeton University.

Wally writes concert music and collaborates with theater makers and visual artists. He currently divides his time between the US and Castlemaine, Victoria
