ICE at Mount Tremper Arts | Music of Nathan Davis

  • Mount Tremper Arts 647 South Plank Road Mount Tremper, NY (map)

Nathan Davis makes music inspired by natural processes, acoustic phenomena, and the abstraction of simple stories.  He has received commissions from ICE, the Calder String Quartet, the Ojai Festival (for Eighth Blackbird and an installation by sound-sculptor Trimpin), Ethos Percussion Group, TimeTable, and the Moving Theater Dance Company, and received awards from Meet The Composer's Commissioning Music/USA, the Jerome Foundation, American Music Center, MATA, the Argosy Foundation, ASCAP, and the ISCM.  In February 2011, Lincoln Center presented the premiere of his 30 minute site-specific work Bells to open the new Tully Scope Festival.  Nathan's music has also been programmed at NYC's Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, Roulette, and at Darmstadt, Helsinki Musica Nova, and other festivals in North America, Poland, China, and Cuba.  Recordings include his electroacoustic percussion cd Memory Spaces, flutist Claire Chase's debut Aliento, and a forthcoming monograph longplay from ICE.  Nathan is also a percussionist for ICE and for the cello/percussion duo Odd Appetite
