Nathaniel Haering is deeply interested in the use of live electronics to expand the artistic capabilities of traditional instruments and augment their timbral horizons while enriching their expressive and improvisational possibilities. This perspective is also highly influential and represented in the gestural power and extended sound worlds of his purely acoustic work. He has collaborated with and had works performed by Grammy® Award-winning Vietnamese performer and composer Vân Ánh Võ, Trio Accanto, Ensemble Mise-En, Mivos Quartet, Wild Up, and members of WasteLAnd, Ensemble Ipse, Ensemble Dal Niente, the International Contemporary Ensemble, and the LA Phil. Winner of the 2019 ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Award, the 2019 PRIX CIME Residency Prize, and the Mixed Media Award of Distinction from MA/IN festival in Matera, Italy, Nathaniel’s work can be found on flux, vol. 33 as well as multiple volumes of Music from SEAMUS. His pieces have recently been featured at the International Computer Music Conference in Shanghai, Seoul, and NYC; Noisefloor Festival at Staffordshire University, UK; VIPA in Valencia, Spain; WOCMAT in HsinChu City, Taiwan; SONIC MATTER in Zürich, Switzerland; and numerous other international venues.
