Randall Woolf was born in Detroit. He discovered classical music for himself in college, having spent high school in the usual garage-rock bands. He studied composition privately from 1982 to 1987, taking 3 years of counterpoint and harmony lessons in the Schoenberg tradition with noted microtonalist and jazz visionary Joseph Maneri. he studied orchestration and composition privately with David Del Tredici. In a moment of weakness, he entered the Ph. D. program at Harvard in 1987, and escaped as quickly as possible, in 1990. He resides in Brooklyn with his wife, pianist and ranteuse Kathleen Supové.

His music ranges from the purely traditional classical media such as string quartet and orchestra to the entirely electronic and theatrical, though he is happiest between these extremes. He is frequently performed throughout the United States by groups such as the Seattle Symphony, present Music, Third Angle, Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Paul Dresher Ensemble, Bang On A Can/SPIT Orchestra, California EAR Unit, American Composers Orchestra, Fulcrum Point, Ransom Wilson, New Millennium Ensemble, Dinosaur Annex, Ethel, American Baroque, Dogs of Desire chamber orchestra, Meridian Arts Ensemble, and the Society for New Music, among others. He arranges music for John Cale, including his score for the film "American Psycho." He is now working with film directors Mary Harron and John C. Walsh on a piece about Tibetan Refugees.
