Six rising composers from around the country come together at 92YTribeca to help launch Meet The Composer Studio, a new website that provides a virtual window into their creative lives. Through live performances, video clips and conversation, the composers will preview their latest projects, which will also be chronicled on the site.

Chicago is represented by Glenn Kotche, the inventive and searching drummer of Wilco and Marcos Balter, who creates compelling tapestries of pure sound.

The Bay Area’s experimental vibe comes through in Dohee Lee’s shamanistic performance art and Ken Ueno’s startling vocal techniques. All names to watch, these artists epitomize the vibrant diversity of today’s new music sce
