Ethan Boxley is an up and coming young composer. He is a third year music composition student studying with Hans Thomalla at the Bienen School of Music, Northwestern University. His goal is to compose music which is beautiful and accessible, and also incorporates the complexity of earlier forms. His compositional interests include the use of early forms in modern contexts, and the use of pitches and rhythms made by water and other natural sounds in combination with more tonal musical elements. His works have won a number of competitions and have been performed by the Spektral Quartet, Fort Collins Symphony, Northwestern’s Renaissance Singers, Denver’s Playground Ensemble and NoCo Artists.
