Owen Kirby is a composer currently exploring many mediums, including large ensembles, chamber groups, choir, and other eclectic instrument combinations. Much of what drives Owen’s music is an enthrallment with the individual experience: the unique stories, emotions, visuals, etcetera, that play out in one’s mind while listening to music. He finds it to be a beautiful realization that every listener will have their own unique experience. Being an avid wilderness enthusiast, he always strives to connect his work to the natural world. Owen’s fascination with improvisation is what encompasses much of his process in composing, however, he also likes to explore new ways of creating that may allow for new perspectives through the composition process.
