His recent compositions have been focused on the environment as well as political and philosophical issues, with the sound world inhabiting a space somewhere between minimalism and post-progressive rock with dashes of polystylism. LaMont has a doctorate in music composition with a cognate in percussion from the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music. He is an assistant professor at FSU where he teaches percussion lessons and ensemble, composition lessons and courses, and various courses within the music industry track.
