Executive Director, Composer
A thoughtful explorer of the sound world, Nathan Cornelius searches for the hidden beauty in sounds both fresh and familiar. By taking listeners with him on this journey through sonic landscapes, he seeks to open to their ears to new colors, textures, and ultimately, new ways of hearing. Trained as a classical guitarist, Nathan pursues a multifaceted career in composition, performance, and teaching. He is deeply interested in the connections between music and the visual arts as they embody the values of a civilization, and he hopes to compose music that both reflects his Christian faith and expands the imagination of the culture. He blogs about new music and his compositional philosophy at deformingprisms.wordpress.com. His photography, ceramic work and art history research have received various awards, and he operates the online ceramics shop SfzCeramics, featuring his own work.
