Austin Vaughn is a musician who plays the drumset. He has been living in New York since 2011. His solo music has primarily been an investigation/celebration of various acoustic phenomena, e.g. exploration of overtones, sympathetic vibration, and interference beating via “extended” percussion techniques in addition to the totally ordinary.

Austin earned a BA at Oberlin Conservatory, where he studied old-fashioned, new-fangled, and timeless musical stylings with Billy Hart, Mike Rosen, and Jamey Haddad, Austin works often with Ashcan Orchestra, Cassandra Jenkins, Luke Temple, Pavo Pavo, Ron Shalom’s Fers Yn Ri, and Will Mason’s Happy Place.
