Matthew Heap, born in 1981, is an internationally performed composer. Allan Kozinn of the New York Times called his music “engagingly noisy…[and] rhythmically sharp-edged.” He has had major performances by the Talea Ensemble, Alia Musica Pittsburgh, TEMPO, Duo Scordatura, and the SIGNAL ensemble. His teachers include Eric Moe, Nancy Galbraith, Leonardo Balada, Amy Williams, and Mathew Rosenblum. He is currently working on a full-length opera about the intersection of gender and power in politics. His compositions range dramatically from completely atonal concert music to musical theatre. He believes in using the techniques and materials that best express the idea that he is hoping to represent, whether they be microtones, multiphonics, 12-tone practices, or triadic harmony. He teaches composition and theory at West Virginia University.
Nathaniel Haering is deeply interested in the use of live electronics to expand the artistic capabilities of traditional instruments and augment their timbral horizons while enriching their expressive and improvisational possibilities. This perspective is also highly influential and represented in the gestural power and extended sound worlds of his purely acoustic work. He has collaborated with and had works performed by Grammy Award-winning Vietnamese performer and composer Vân Ánh Võ, Trio Accanto, Ensemble Mise-En, Mivos string quartet, and members of WasteLAnd and Ensemble Dal Niente. Winner of the 2018 mixed media Award of Distinction from Matera Intermedia Festival in Matera, Italy and official runner up for the Tribeca New Music Award, Haering’s work can also be found on Volume 27 of Music from SEAMUS. Haering’s pieces have recently been featured at the International Computer Music Conference in Shanghai, China, and Seoul, South Korea, the Toronto International Electroacoustic Symposium in Toronto, Canada, Noisefloor Festival at Staffordshire University UK, VIPA in Valencia, Spain, WOCMAT in Taiwan, CMSS Festival in Seoul, South Korea, and SEAMUS 2018 Conference at the University of Oregon. Haering is pursuing a PhD in Music Composition at the University of California San Diego and recently completed his Master’s degree at Bowling Green State University where he studied with Dr. Elainie Lillios and Dr. Mikel Kuehn. Previously, he received his undergraduate degree in composition from Western Michigan University where he studied with Dr. Christopher Biggs and Dr. Lisa R. Coons.
