Kyle Lewis - Composer

Kyle Lewis is a composer, theorist, and performer.  Lately, he’s been interested in extended notational systems and how they interact with performers’ cognition of the music, patient pacing, aleatory, subtleties in otherwise homogeneous sounds, variety in scale of works, small ideas as art, humor, multiple or variable time streams, using technology without using electronic sounds, and framing art from everyday moments.  He recently finished a residency at the Athens Institute for Contemporary Art (ATHICA), where he held 6 concerts and co-wrote/premiered a new piece with his duo Guy Did Ail, an ensemble in which he regularly works and performs.  Guy Did Ail (@GuyDidAil on social media) also features visual artist Gunnar Tarsa and explores the balance between predictability and possibility in aleatoric art as well as other multi-sensory, experiential explorations.   His music has been played by Rote Hünd Musik, Incongruency Ensemble, Duo Damiana, Erik Krohg, Ann DuHamel, and Stuart Gerber, among others.  He has studied regularly with Cody Brookshire, Natalie Williams, Peter Van Zandt Lane, and Adam Roberts.  Outside of the new music world, he fronted a punkish, metal-type band called We by the Sea and sang with the UGA Hodgson Singers.  Kyle Lewis graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Georgia with BM degrees in Music Composition and Music Theory in December 2017 and will be pursuing an MA in Composition from SUNY Stony Brook, starting Fall 2018.
