Composer Steve Antosca likes to keep thing unpredictable.
As the former director of the venerable Verge Ensemble and now as the head of the National Gallery of Art's New Music Ensemble, he's brought wildly imaginative concerts - featuring everything from drum-playing robots to "echoic landscapes" created by motion-capturing devices - to Washington for more than a decade.

Steve Antosca's "Habitat" at the National Gallery of Art
But it's an equally spectacular setting for contemporary music, as composer Steve Antosca proved Sunday evening with the world premiere of "Habitat," a work for computer and percussion that filled the atrium with a surging, often breathtaking ocean of sound - and turned the huge space into an instrument in its own right. A fascinating and often compelling new work from Antosca, played with exceptional skill by Karre - who also turned in a fine account of John Cage's magnificent "Cartridge Music" from 1960, which opened the program.

Antosca is noted for performances of his compositions in unique spaces throughout Washington and recognized for his extensive record of collaborations with Washington performance venues.
After several years of developing new music events with the National Gallery of Art, in 2010 Antosca was invited by Stephen Ackert, Head of the NGA Music Department to form the National Gallery of Art New Music Ensemble (NGA NME). Antosca was the National Gallery of Art Composer-in-Residence in the Fall of 2013 where he premiered two works with the NGA NME. His Chamber Music America commission my end is my beginning was described as A fascinating and often compelling new work from Antosca." Antosca presented HABITAT COMPOSITION | PERFORMANCE | TECHNOLOGY | SPACES as part of the Library of Congress Technofiles lecture series. In celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the West Building of the National Gallery in 2011, Antosca presented a concert in the Gallery Rotunda, which the Washington Post wrote was transformed into "an immense temple of sound, presenting a program of theatrical new works that married humans with computers, and ancient myths with contemporary aesthetics." In 2015 Antosca was appointed Curator for New Music-in-Residence at the American University Museum in the Katzen Arts Center creating the concert series CONNECTED: MUSIC IN THE MUSEUM. The series will focuses on the use of technology in composition and performance to exploit the sonically unique and visually rich performance environment of the Katzen Museum. Antosca was named winner of the International Music Prize for Excellence in Composition 2011, awarded by the National Academy of Music. He received a Meet the Composer award, an award in the 36th Bourges International Competitions, a Lifetime Award from the Mandel Foundation, and numerous awards from the Randy Hostetler Living Room Music Fund, the Maryland State Arts Council, and National Endowment for the Arts grants in 2007 and 2012 to present festivals of contemporary music in Washington. He received a three year teaching technology award from the US Department of Education. Upcoming commissions for Antosca include the chamber ensemble work a delicate balance for the Phillips Collection as part of their 75th Anniversary celebration in the Spring of 2016. Among his works are commissions from Chamber Music America, the McKim Fund in the Library of Congress, the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard University, a Subito/Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund/American Composers Forum commission, the Kennedy Center, American Music Center, Georgetown University Orchestra, Pictures on Silence, No EXIT Ensemble and the Johansen International Competition.

In Washington, his work has been performed at the National Gallery, Corcoran Gallery, la maison Franc¸aise, Phillips Collection, Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution and numerous universities. His works have been performed at the first New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, NYU, June in Buffalo, the Stone, the Issue Project Room, and le poisson rouge. His work was presented at the first edition of the International Electroacoustic Music Festival in Rome and at subsequent EMUfest concerts. From 2002 through 2012, Antosca was Artistic Director and composer member of the highly regarded VERGE ensemble of Washington. The Washington Post wrote, the ensemble puts "modern classical music in front of the public with more dedication and skill than? any other group in Washington" and is "a national presence." Antosca was a co-director of the 2012 John Cage Centennial Festival Washington, DC., which took place throughout the Washington area September 4 - 10, 2012. Regarding the Festival's impact, the Washington Post wrote that for Washington "where artistic life centers on museums and conservation" the Festival "could be seen as a gradual shift in Washington where Antosca, the National Gallery, the Library of Congress, the maison Française and others have been working hard to cultivate a contemporary music audience." Steve Antosca has a Master's degree in Computer Music Composition from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University. He lives and teaches privately in the Washington, DC area.
