Dissertation Title: 
A Thing Is a Hole in a Thing It Is Not for String Quartet


Andrew Greenwald (born Queens N.Y) is an American composer whose current work engages with issues of pixelated sound material viewed at increasing resolutions; rational formal containers for that material; and didactic indexing of those containers to form a perceived whole/hole. His work has been commissioned or independently programmed by Ensemble Pamplemousse, Arditti Quartet, JACK Quartet, Mivos Quartet, Spektral Quartet, Ensemble Adapter, On Structure, Ensemble Dal Niente, Line Upon Line Percussion, and Seth Josel at festivals and venues throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. He has been an active member of Ensemble Pamplemousse since 2002 and is the current acting artistic co-director. Andrew's compositions have received support from the Hepner Foundation, Argosy Foundation, the American Music Center Composer Assistance Program, NYSCA, the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O'Connor Foundation, the Alice M. Ditson fund, and Meet the Composer. He pursued graduate studies in composition/experimental music at Wesleyan University under the supervision of advisor Alvin Lucier and is currently the David R. Coelho graduate fellow at Stanford University, where he is a doctoral candidate in composition working with Brian Ferneyhough and Jonathan Berger.
