BIO

Simon Fink is a composer working in concert music, electronic music, and pop music. Drawing on both old and new compositional techniques, his work explores time, space, and emotion through harmonic tension and rhythmic drama. His music has recently been played by the Grammy-winning ensembles Pacifica Quartet and eighth blackbird, as well as many others such as the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Dal Niente, and the Birmingham Art Music Alliance. In 2008 the innovative recorder ensemble, Quartet New Generation, toured his piece, The Kick Galvanic, across the country. Simon has won numerous honors, awards, and grants from organizations such as the New York Youth Symphony, the American Composers Forum, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. In 2009 his piece Electric Pastoral, for string quartet and electronics, won an ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composers Award. The acoustic version of the piece, titled Pastorals for String Quartet, won first prize in the Con Vivo Jersey City’s Quartet Competition. In 2008 he was awarded fellowships to both the Aspen Music Festival and the I-Park Artists’ Enclave. He has collaborated on multimedia performance projects with the arts organizations Uniondocs and Peter Stuyvesant’s Ghost in New York and Berlin. In 2008, Simon’s pop music project, Still Lost Bird Music, released its first album on the DashGo Records label. The single, “Chocolate Heart,” is currently featured on the popular iPhone game, Tap Tap Revenge. He holds degrees from the North Carolina School of the Arts and Rice University and is currently working under a fellowship from the Mellon Foundation to finish his dissertation piece, an original song cycle set to early twentieth-century poetry, en route to a Ph.D. in Music Composition from the University of Chicago.
