    Nathan Davis

    Profile

    Nathan Davis "writes music that deals deftly and poetically with timbre and sonority" (NY Times). His opera/ballet “Hagoromo" was produced by American Opera Projects and premiered at the BAM Next Wave Festival with the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and legendary dancers Wendy Whelan, and Jock Soto. Lincoln Center presented the premiere of “Bells”, a site-specific, electroacoustic piece for ensemble, multi-channel audio, and live broadcast to audience members’ mobile phones. Nathan has received commissions from ICE, GMEM and Ensemble CBarré (Marseille), Donaueschinger Musiktage, Yarn/Wire, Steven Schick, Jacob Greenberg and Ekmeles, Miller Theatre, Ojai Music Festival, the Calder Quartet, and Third Coast Percussion, with premieres at Tanglewood, Park Avenue Armory, and Carnegie Hall. His music has been released on Starkland, Tundra, New Focus, and Bridge. The 2018 Aaron Copland Fellow at the Bogliasco Foundation, Davis received awards from the Camargo, PEW, Fromm, and Jerome Foundations, MATA, and ASCAP, and was given a residency together with theater artist Sylvia Milo at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. An active percussionist and member of the International Contemporary Ensemble, he appeared as a concerto soloist with the Seattle Symphony, Tokyo Symphony, and Nagoya Philharmonic. www.nathandavis.com
