Nathan M. Asman is a musician, composer, music technologist, instrument designer, and digital artist. His musical and artistic endeavors reside mainly within the electronic/digital realm, where he specializes in data-driven instrument creation and sound generation. Focusing on the intersection of popular and academic music, he strives to unite the two musical styles utilizing the endless musical and artistic opportunities afforded him by the world of music technology and computer-based music. Nathan creates new and unheard sounds, performances, and instruments from the ground up by employing innovative and alternative instrument and sound designs in his compositions and performances. His goal is to apply his knowledge and skills to further the fields of music technology and digital art by producing music that can be appreciated by both the expert and casual listener. Strengthening the awareness, enjoyment, and importance of music, art, and technology within the academic community is paramount to his work, but cultivating and bolstering those sentiments outside of the academy is absolutely essential, and permeates his work on every level.
Nathan is currently pursuing his D.M.A. (Doctor of Musical Arts) in Data-Driven Instruments from the University of Oregon under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Stolet and Dr. Akiko Hatakeyama.
