Peter Garland (born January 25, 1952 in Portland, Maine) is a composer best known for publishing Soundings Press, one of the few sources of new music scores and articles while in print. A student of James Tenney and Harold Budd, much of Garland's work could be considered post-minimal although many of his postminimal works such as "The Days Run Away" (1971) were written in the early 1970s at the same time as the first minimalist works. He is also an expert on American Indian music. He is the author of Gone Walkabout: Essays 1991-.\
Peter Garland started his Soundings Press series in 1971 after attending a publishing workshop with Dick Higgins at CalArts.
He lives in Bath, Maine.
