Bob Bralove was the MIDI wizard, producer (Infrared Roses, Built to Last), and co-writer of Gold and Platinum selling songs, including: Picasso Moon, Way to Go Home, Easy Answers, Parallelogram, Little Nemo in Nightland, Sparrow Hawk Row, with the Grateful Dead for the last eight years of the long, strange trip. Bralove, who has a Masters Degree in composition, studied with Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Wayne Peterson, focusing on composing orchestral and chamber works. He perfected his skills in the digital manipulation of sound, as the sound designer and computer music director for Stevie Wonder (Woman in Red, In Square Circle). After an eight-year tenure with Stevie, he began working with the Grateful Dead. His first project was to help score the CBS remake of the television series The Twilight Zone.
In addition to his songwriting, producing and MIDI wizard activities for the band, Bralove is especially well known for his undeniable creative sound, performing and designing with the Grateful Dead, the mind-bending, avant-garde Drums and Space segments of their live shows. Bralove also performs his art work and music live across the U.S. and in Japan in solo concerts, with Dose Hermanos and The Psychedelic Keyboard Trio, Bralove's paintings and prints have been featured in a three gallery exhibition/ installation at The Dogwood Center for Performing Arts in Fremont, MI and at the Newago County Council of the Arts Gallery.
