Schuessler attributes the work of New York School composers as having a profound influence upon his compositional output. His diverse output spans a number of different trends including pre-compositional devices of spectralism, indeterminacy and graphic notation, new forms of notation, ephemeral sound fabrics, microtonality, popular and rock music, and electro-acoustic music.
Schuessler received his Bachelors Degree in composition at Birmingham-Southern College, his Masters Degree from the University of Miami, and his PhD from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. His teachers have included Charles Mason, Dorothy Hindman Dennis Kam, Keith Kothman, Dan Weymouth, Sheila Silver, Perry Goldstein, and Daria Semegen.
He has had works performed by notable artists such as the Goliard Ensemble, Dither Guitar Quartet, Mantra Percussion Ensemble, violinist Graeme Jennings, TimeTable percussion trio, Ensemble, Inc., percussionist Daniel Kennedy, soprano Tony Arnold, and cellist Craig Hultgren. He has had works performed at notable venues such as June in Buffalo, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga New Music Symposium, Birmingham City Stages Festival, Festival Miami, the Czech-American Summer Music Workshop, CCMIX in Paris, SEAMUS Conferences, ArtSounds in Kansas City, Artomatic in Arlington, Virginia, Electronic Music Midwest, New Music Forum in San Francisco, the School for Designing a Society in Urbana, Illinois, Electroacoustic Juke Joint in Cleveland, Mississippi, and the Spark Festival in Minneapolis. He has also been a participant at the MusicX Festival, the Ernst Bloch Music Festival, the Elliott Carter/Oliver Knussen Chamber Music Intensive Workshop at Carnegie Hall, and the Oregon Bach Festival.
His electro-acoustic music has been recognized in France by Elektrophonie’s NuitBleue Music Festival, the Futura Festival, and the Bourges Residence.
