Ethan Boxley is an up and coming young composer. Currently a master’s student at the New England Conservatory of Music, Ethan has a Bachelor of Music in Composition from Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music. 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.

Composer and pianist Ethan Boxley explores the new age genre with the release of Past Summer. The album features a collection of ten original pieces inspired by friends and memories. As for all his compositions, Ethan explains that his aim is to “combine rich, contrapuntal textures and devices with clear, memorable melodic idiom,” in order to create music that is “as engaging and listenable as it is highly complex.”
