Emerson Voss is a composer, video artist, and educator based in Pittsburgh.
Voss is interested in the total experience of both performer and listener. Underlying his work is the knowledge that performance and listening are embodied, meaning that all our senses can be engaged in an artistic experience. Recently, Voss has written works that highlight theater and music performance’s shared avenue of meaning-making—bodies in motion.
Voss’s music has been performed by the Da Capo Chamber Players, Julia Den Boer, Miranda Cuckson, Dolce Wind Quintet, Duo Cortona, TAK Ensemble, Peter Bloom and many others. He has attended Wintergreen Composers’ Retreat and Snow Pond Composers’ Festival as well as been accepted to New Music on the Point and the São Paulo Contemporary Composers Festival. Voss holds an MM in Theory/Composition from East Carolina University and a BA in Piano and Theory/Composition from Campbell University.
