We feel incredibly lucky to have gotten so many amazing applications this year. We were introduced to many new-to-us composers and hope to hear and play their music in the years to come! We would like to mention all of our finalists and encourage you to get to know them and their work!
Rejecting grandiose narratives, the music of Chicago-based composer Paul Novak is driven by a love of
small things: miniature forms, delicate soundscapes, and condensed ideas. His compositions, which draw influence from literature, art, and poetry, have been performed throughout the United States and abroad. Each of Novak’s pieces immerses listeners in a shimmering and subtly crafted musical world, guided by a sense of empathy for the performers playing his music. Originally from Reno, NV, he is currently a PhD student at the University of Chicago.
Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Ya-Lan Chan is currently based in New York. She is interested in the creative
process of music-making with collaborators, especially to explore the relationship between technology and humans and how these two shape each other over time. She also collaborates with various artistic mediums and has done so with animation, poetry, dancing, and lighting design. Ya-Lan holds degrees from Manhattan school of Music and Taipei National University of the arts. She is currently pursuing her doctoral study at Manhattan School of music, where she studies with Dr. Reiko Füting.
Gene Coleman is a composer, musician and video director. He has created over 80 works for various instrumentation and media. Central to his practice is the inventive use of sound, image and time, and the desire to create experiences that expand our understanding of the world. Since 2001 he has explored the global transformation of culture and music's relationship with video, science and architecture.
Dan Langa is a composer, producer, and arranger creating music that explores bold and vivid textures. He holds a particular fascination with electroacoustic music and incorporating elements of the natural world into his work. He is the co-founder of cmntx records, a New York City-based and artist-run record label committed to supporting artists with distinct, multifaceted practices. Dan earned his BA in Music from Amherst College and a Master’s Degree in Music Theory and Composition from NYU.
Lydia Winsor Brindamour’s work explores cross-sensory perception, embodiment and acoustic properties of sound. She is interested in immersive contexts for live performance, challenging conventions of proscenium performance spaces and providing alternative modes of engagement for the audience. Her practice includes composition, photography and video and she enjoys working in interdisciplinary collaborative contexts.

He currently teaches theory and aural skills at the University of Florida.

Mauro Hertig is a composer with an output of ensemble, chamber and site-specific works. He creates stage environments as game-like settings, using sounds of intimate speech, touch and instructions. Hertig was selected “Promising Young Composer 2016” by the Ulysses Network, as well as laureate of the Voix Nouvelles Composition Academy Royaumont in 2019. More recently, he was composer-in-residence at the Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology (ICST) Zürich, the 180° Festival for Innovative Art in Sofia and the Camargo Foundation, France.
