New York-based composer Nina C. Young (b. 1984) writes instrumental and electronic music with a particular interest in mixing them. With a unique voice that draws from spectralism, romanticism, and Russian folklore, Nina’s piece pieces incorporate her research on blending studio composition and production techniques into instrumental ensembles, always with a view toward creating a natural and cohesive sound world. Nina’s music has been performed internationally by the American Composers Orchestra, Argento, Either/Or, Jack Quartet, Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, Orkest de ereprijs, Sixtrum, and Yarn/Wire, among others. She is a recipient of the Charles Ives Scholarship and the Martirano Memorial Award, along with honors from BMI, ASCAP/SEAMUS, IAWM, and the ACO. She has been awarded fellowships to the Atlantic Music Festival, Tanglewood Music Center, and the Aspen Music Festival. Nina holds degrees from MIT, McGill University, and is currently pursuing a doctorate at Columbia University where she studies with Georg Friedrich Haas, Fred Lerdahl, George Lewis, and Brad Garton.
