Edmund Scott Miller, composer




Edmund Scott Miller is a composer, educator, and bassist in Baltimore, Maryland. His visceral music is concerned with memory, thought, and the passage of time, expressed through unconventional performance techniques, evocative microtonal harmonies, and a constantly-evolving approach to timbre and melody as structural parameters. Whether writing instrumental or vocal music for forces large or small, a primary concern is to establish a sound world unique to each composition. Miller has recently been commissioned by the Western Connecticut Youth Orchestra, Occasional Symphony, Baltimore Classical Guitar Society, and Nebula Ensemble. He was a composition Fellow at the 2016 Aspen Music Festival and School. While attending The Peabody Conservatory, Miller studied with Kevin Puts, earning Master of Music degrees in composition and music theory pedagogy. Previously, Miller received a Bachelor of Music degree in composition from SUNY Fredonia through his work with Robert Deemer, Karl Boelter, and Sean Doyle. Additional teachers with whom Miller has taken lessons and participated in masterclasses include Christopher Theofanidis, Stephen Hartke, Christopher Rouse, Michael Hersch,  Daron Hagon, Paul Colman, Donald Crocket, Marc Mellits, and Lansing McLoskey. Recent awards include the 2015 Macht Orchestral Composition Competition for Pillars, erased and the 2013 Ethos Laureate Prize for his chamber opera Randall’s Leaf. Miller was a Finalist in the 2016 BMI Student Composers Awards and received an Honorable Mention from the 2016 Minnesota Composer’s Institute. [musicmiller.com]
