Erin

BY STEPHEN LILLY

 


STEPHEN LILLY is a DC-based composer, performer, audio engineer, and sound artist. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Stephen ventured east to study composition at the University of Maryland and stayed in the area to teach digital audio at the Art Institute of Washington. In addition to his graduate degrees from UMD, he also has composition and bass performance degrees from the University of Idaho and spent a year at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague. Theatricality, language, and abstraction are themes that continually resurface in his creative work, the majority of which is scored for chamber ensembles, incorporating signal processing and computer generated sounds. Stephen has written works for CoMA (Contemporary Music for All) Britsol, the DMC (Devil May Care) Duo, pianist Hayk Arsenyan, saxophonist Steven Leffue, and soprano Stacey Mastrian, and has worked closely with a collective of composer-performers, the Bay Players Experimental Music Collective, that he helped found. His writings on contemporary experimental music have been published in Organised Sound, Performance Research, Perspectives of New Music, and Computer Music Journal. Recordings he has engineered have been released on Navona and Albany Records. Learn more here.
