Robert Voisey

Composer

About

Composers know Robert for presenting their music in places around the world.

Voisey has been described as "mad" or "crazy" by the New York Times, Time Out London, Music and Vision, and White Fungus Magazine. "The first thing to be said about "60x60 Dance" is that it is a masterpiece of organization. The idea ... is quite mad. But it's this kind of madness that makes the cultural world go round, and so our thanks are due to the composer Robert Voisey" - An Express Without Any Delays, New York Times

Robert Voisey composes chamber music and electronic music. His chamber music feels neo-romantic and frequently utilizes extended instrumental techniques and graphic notation. The electronic music he creates tends to be either ambient in nature utilizing throat-singing techniques he records of himself or he flips over into a mashup territory comprising of a collage of micro-samples.

Robert's piano work, "Persistence of Melancholy" received its Carnegie Hall debut in 2019 and featured on the album ENDURANCE with pianist Matthew McCright.

The Mid America Freedom Band premiered Robert Voisey's work at Electronic Music Midwest festival and was described by as, "... combined Mid America Freedom Band's concert band instrumentation with electronics in compelling ways, allowing these often separated musical ventures to work together. Voisey's work ... used mass textures and a graphic score that played with, and against, concert band tropes, with the electronics supporting and enhancing the dense sound masses." - Computer Music Journal 2019
