Brendon Randall-Myers is a Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist, and the co-founder of composer/performer ensemble Invisible Anatomy and artpunk band Marateck. Described as "fiercely aggressive but endlessly compelling" (The San Francisco Chronicle), his music amplifies the raw physical and emotional power of bodies creating sound together. Brendon has received commissions from the Jerome Fund for New Music, the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, the Guitar Foundation of America, and Roulette Intermedium, working with performers such as the Bang on a Can All-Stars, the Omaha Symphony, Friction Quartet, Sandbox Percussion, and David Tanenbaum.

As a guitarist, Brendon is a member of the Glenn Branca Ensemble, the Dither Big Band, and Real Loud. He has performed with the Atlanta Symphony, Ensemble Signal, Opera Saratoga, and Magik*Magik Orchestra; at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, the Barbican Theatre in London, and the Kennedy Center;  on WNYC New Sounds Live, the Detroit Institute of Arts' Friday Night Live series, the Beijing Modern Music Festival, and the Ellnora Guitar Festival.

Brendon grew up home-schooled in rural West Virginia, and holds degrees from Pomona College and the Yale School of Music.
