Now at Copland House

Throughout the creations of Brooklyn-based HOWIE KENTY (sometimes known by his musical alter-ego Hwarg) runs the idea that the experience of a piece is more than just listening to the music. He strives for a wholeness of vision and an awareness of environment to fully draw the audience into his works. His music is stylistically diverse, encompassing contemporary classical, electronic, rock, sound art, and more, often with visual and theatrical elements. Besides regularly premiering pieces internationally, serving as an executive producer of New York City's Electroacoustic Music Festival, teaching, and working with artists like DJ Spooky and Amanda Palmer, he plays guitar in the progressive rock band The Benzene Ring. A Graduate Council Fellow doctoral student at Stony Brook University, his We Have Less Time Than You Think won first prize at the 2013 Shanghai Electronic Music Week, and his Scherzo; Dance received an Honorary Mention in the 2008 Prix Ars Electronica. He will be in residence here through mid-August.
