Alex Weiser is a composer of patient and thought provoking, yet visceral and dramatic chamber, orchestral, and vocal music. Alex's music has a diverse variety of influences and freely draws from everything from the history of concert music, to the popular music of today. Often utilizing a colorful tonal language and repetition, his music's discourse is at once rich and abstract, and yet always lucid, accessible and very grounded. He has received commissions and performances by ensembles such as Dark in the Song, the JACK quartet, Cadillac Moon Ensemble, Argento New Music Project, the Sinopia Quartet, Fifth House Ensemble, Metapraxis Ensemble, and New Triad. He has been a resident at the Millay Colony and his music has been performed around the world at music festivals including the Norfolk New Music Workshop, June in Buffalo, the European American Musical Alliance, and highSCORE.
