Anthony Vine

San Diego, CA            

Anthony Vine (b. 1988) is a composer and guitarist currently living in San Diego, California. Vine’s music is characterized by carefully sculpted fragile landscapes, static networks of microtonal harmony, and strong influences from visual artists and choreographers.

In 2016, Anthony was awarded the  Gaudeamus Prize. The jury noted that “Anthony Vine creates a solid, mature, beautifully crafted fragile sound world. He knows how to blur the identity of the different sources of sounds including the use of electronics in a very singular way.” Other awards and honors include the 2015 Jerome Fund Commissioning Award, 2015 Salvatore Martirano Memorial Composition Award (2nd place), NPR/Q2 Radio Top Composers under 40 (2011), and the 2010 and 2009 Ruth Friscoe Composition Prizes at The Ohio State University.

His music has been performed by the Minnesota Orchestra, Yarn/Wire, Alarm Will Sound, Bozzini Quartet, Ensemble Modelo62, Bearthoven, Ensemble SurPlus, Trio SurPlus, The Syndicate for the New Arts, and the Illinois Modern Ensemble with performances at festivals throughout the world, including the Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Utrecht), Time of Music (Musiikin Aika, Finland), Ultima Festival (Oslo), MATA Festival (New York), and Nief Norf Summer Festival (Knoxville). His music has been recorded and released on Cantaloupe Music and Galtta Media.

Vine collaborates frequently with choreographers and multimedia artists: most recently, he has been working with Brooklyn-based dance collective Logan Company.

He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego.
