Tyler Capp (b. 1983) writes relentless, tonally charged, trans-stylistic works in an attempt to reconcile his diverse influences with the curious predicament of being a concert music composer in the 21st Most recently, he was awarded a fellowship by the CULTIVATE program to write a piece for Music from Copland House, and his work Cryptogram for wind ensemble received a 2013 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award. After earning degrees in composition from the University of Delaware (BM) and Stony Brook University (MA), Tyler began a DMA at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance where he was awarded a prestigious Chancellor's Doctoral Fellowship. His composition teachers have included Jennifer Margaret Barker, Chen Yi, James Mobberley, Paul Rudy, Sheila Silver, Peter Winkler, and Zhou Long.
