The music of American composer Steve Antosca focuses on the integration of instruments with computers for audio processing and spatialization. The Washington Post has described his work as "spectacular, wonderfully provocative" and "a shimmering, multilayered sea of sound, surging with power under a surface of delicate detail - a fascinating dance between the human players and their electronic ghosts."
Named Artistic Director of the National Gallery of Art New Music Ensemble, which he formed in 2010, Antosca began a six-week appointment as Composer-in-Residence at the Gallery in September 2013.
Antosca has received awards and commissions from the American Composers Forum, Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund, Bourges International Competitions, Chamber Music America, Fromm Fund at Harvard University, Johansen International Competition, the Kennedy Center, Maryland State Arts Council, McKim Fund at the Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Arts, Meet the Composer, and the US Department of Education. Recipient in 2011 of the National Academy of Music's International Music Prize for Excellence in Composition, Antosca has a master's degree in computer music composition from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University.
From 2002 through 2012, Antosca was Artistic Director and composer member of the highly regarded VERGE ensemble in residence at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. 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 agradual shift in Washington where Antosca, the National Gallery, the Library of Congress, the Maison Francaise and others have been working hard to cultivate a contemporary music audience."

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.
