Hunter Ewen is a dynamic young composer whose music represents a quirky synergy between the virtuosic and the absurd. Originally trained in Mechanical Engineering, Ewen's music often explores new electroacoustic modalities of composition.
Heavily influenced by the "Augmented Reality" movement in science and visual art, Ewen often treats electronics as a mechanism to make live performers bigger, stronger, faster, and louder. Humor and sarcasm abound. His music is often accompanied by multimedia components of his own creation, usually video, visual art, photography, dance, or poetry.
Ewen's notable collaborations and commissions include Lina Bahn, Edward Dusinberre, the Greater Cleveland Flute Society, The Playground Ensemble, Alarm Will Sound, GAMMA-UT, Case Western Educational Support Services, Gary Ciepluch, Anne Levy, Emmy nominated actor Bill Mooney, and Grammy nominated saxophonist Greg Banaszak with the Beethoven Academy Orchestra.
Ewen’s music appears in publications from Alphonse Leduc, Ken Dorn, Theodore Presser, Centaur Records, Ouroboros Review, and Fujihara Publications.
